1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used 1/4 tsp)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted (I may use 3 Tbsp next time)
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries (I used 2 cups)
(I added 1 tsp vanilla extract)

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar (I used dark brown)
1/4 cup cold butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans (I omitted this)
(I added 1 tsp cinnamon - next time I'll add 1 1/2 - 2 tsp)


(Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease an 8x8 inch square pan).

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; stir to mix.

In a second bowl, add the egg, milk, and butter; stir to mix; add to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.

Pour mixture into a greased 8-inch square baking dish.

Place strawberries evenly over the top of batter.

To make the topping:
Combine the flour and sugar in a bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in the butter until consistency of coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the strawberries.

Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. (Many reviewers suggested baking about 40 minutes, which I did, but next time I may bake it for a little less time).

8 servings
