Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour 175g plain flour
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup mascapone 60ml (4 tbsp)
  • ¼ cup milk 60ml
  • ½ lemon zest ie from ½ lemon
  • ½ tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup strawberries 140g, stems removed and roughly chopped, divided

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C.
  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. 
  • Put the mascapone, milk, lemon zest and juice, sugar and half the strawberries (½ cup/70g) in a blender/small food processor and blend together.
  • Add the pureed strawberry-mascapone mixture and the remaining chunks of strawberry (cut smaller if any large pieces) to the flour mix and carefully mix it all together, being careful not to overmix. 
  • Tip the mixture out onto a floured surface and carefully flatten the mixture out a bit to around 1in/2.5cm thick (Use floured hands and a little more flour on top, if needed). Cut into pieces - either cut a rough circle into triangles or a rectangle into squares/rectangles as you prefer. You'll get around 6 large or a few more if smaller.
  • Use a spatula to put the pieces onto baking sheets/trays (best lined with greaseproof paper or silicone baking sheet but otherwise oiled) and bake for around 15-18 minutes until browning on the corners.
