Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a round 9" baking tray with butter and a dusting of flour. Remove excess flour.
Slice strawberies. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients... white flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir around. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients... 1/4 cup butter, sugar, and egg.
Cream with an electric mixer until well combined... around 3 minutes.
Now alternate adding between the dry and wet ingredients, starting and ending with dry. So here we are starting with the dry.
And then the wet.
Your batter is done.
Pour the batter into the baking tray.
Layer the strawberries on top of the batter.
Make the crumb mixture by combining the flour, sugar, almonds and butter in a bowl. Mix with your hand.
Top the lined strawberries with the crumb mixture.
Into the oven for 30-35 minutes. Start checking at 30 minutes.
Goes perfectly with a cup of tea/coffee. Enjoy!
