  • 50g butter
  • 75g soft light brown sugar
  • good pinch sea salt flakes
  • 1½ tbsp plain flour
  • 100g toasted flaked almonds


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Melt the butter, sugar and a good pinch of sea salt in a large pan until combined and bubbling – don’t let this get too dark. Add the flour and almonds, and stir until coated in the buttery liquid.

  2. Working quickly, spoon 6 mounds of the almond mixture onto the baking tray, spaced a little apart. Gently press down with the back of a spoon to flatten, then sprinkle with a little extra salt. Bake for 10 mins, then allow to cool before serving with strawberry panna cotta - see 'goes well with', right.
