    Strawberries & sponge drops

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 6 minutes to 8 minutes

    Serves: 8


    35g golden caster sugar
    1 medium essential Waitrose egg
    50g plain flour
    ½ tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp vanilla extract
    2 tbsp Cooks’ Homebaking freeze-dried strawberries 
    30g butter, melted
    800g British strawberries, halved
    500g Waitrose fat-free fromage frais


    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Whisk together the sugar and egg until thick and fluffy. Sift over the flour and baking powder, and gently fold in with the vanilla, freeze-dried strawberries and melted butter.

    2. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Use a teaspoon to spoon 8 rounds of the mixture onto the sheet, making sure they’re spaced well apart. Bake for 6-8 minutes until set and golden. Leave to cool.

    3. Spoon the strawberries into serving bowls and top with the fromage frais. Serve with the sponge drops.
