• Method

This is a great desert to serve at a summer BBQ. The nutty topping is also great with yoghurt and fruit for breakfast and the divine butterscotch sauce is delicious with vanilla ice cream.

First make your crunch topping:

  1. Melt butter in pan then add the sugar and simmer gently for a few minutes.
  2. Take off the heat and stir in the oats and the pistachio nuts and mix thoroughly.
  3. Spread the mixture out evenly on a baking tray and bake in the oven at Gas 2/150C/130 fan/300F for 10 minutes. Do not overcook or brown.
  4. Remove from oven and cool completely before use.

 For the butterscotch sauce:

  1. Melt the butter and sugar slowly in a pan, scrape the vanilla pod into the pan, adding the pod too (optional). Make sure sugar is fully dissolved.
  2. Simmer for 2-3 minutes then take off the heat.
  3. Add the cream and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour the sauce into a jug or bowl, remove the vanilla pod, and allow to cool. The sauce will thicken on cooling.

To serve:

  1. Put three strawberries, halved, into the base of each serving glass.
  2. Spoon a dessert spoon of creme fraiche on top, then sprinkle a thin layer of the crunch topping.
  3. Add another layer of strawberries then drizzle over 2 – 3  teaspoons of the butterscotch sauce.
  4. Sprinkle a little more of the crunch topping to finish.
