Annabel Langbein’s Strawberries with Sugared Almonds
These are delicious alone or served with meringues for a special occasion dessert.
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins
1 cup flaked almonds
¼ cup icing sugar
2 punnets (500g) strawberries, halved or quartered if large
2 tbsp honey
a handful of edible flowers, such as borage, marigold or rose petals (optional)
Preheat oven to 160˚C fanbake and line an oven tray with baking paper. Place almonds in a sieve, run under cold water, shake off excess and stir through icing sugar. Spread out onto prepared tray so they overlap a little. Bake until golden and
crisp (12-15 minutes). If not using at once, cool and store in an airtight container for up to a month.
When ready to serve, divide strawberries between 6 serving bowls and drizzle each with a little honey. Break the sugared almonds into chunks and sprinkle over the strawberries with a few flowers if desired.
