    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

  • icing sugar, for dusting
  • whipped double cream mixed with Greek yogurt (half and half is good), to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas4/ fan 160C. Line the base of a loose-bottomed 23cm cake tin with greaseproof paper and butter the sides.

  2. Mix almonds, butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, egg and egg yolk in a food processor just until the ingredients are evenly combined.

  3. Spread half the mixture over the base of the tin in a smooth layer with no gaps – easiest to do this with two forks. Lay the sliced strawberries on top. Add the remaining cake mixture and spread it as best you can, but don’t worry if a few strawberries peep through.

  4. Bake for 1 hour (it may need an extra 5 minutes), but check after 40 minutes – if it is getting too brown, cover loosely with foil. The torte should be slightly risen and dark golden brown when cooked.

  5. Cool in the tin slightly, then loosen the edges with a knife and remove from the tin. Slide the torte onto a plate and sprinkle with a dusting of icing sugar. Serve warm or cold, in wedges with dollops of cream and Greek yogurt.

glad i'd read the previous comments otherwise would have been really worried about the quantity and dryness of the mix. but turned out really well - had some left after the gathering and my mum even ate it the next day - which means it must have been good.

I 've made this every summer since it was published. It's just scrummy.

Have also tried using frozen strawberries , a bit softer but good. Add the strawberries froze.
It's also good with raspberries, but the stawberry
is tops with me.

So easy and a great way to use any strawberries that are past their best.

Very easy and very good, light and tasty. The dough looks as if it's not going to be enough and it's very crumbly, but don't worry. It turns out fine. The dough could use a pinch of salt though and I've used more cinnamon.
