A wonderful combination of toasted almonds and strawberry flavors. These delicious strawberry almond blondies are just like strawberry cake bars.
Use 8-inch square baking pan or 9-inch diameter round baking pan.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan or a 9-inch diameter round baking pan.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl, using electric mixer, cream together softened butter and brown sugar until the mixture becomes light in color and fluffy in texture, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla extract and continue beating until well combined. Add dry ingredients from step 2, and beat using the mixer, on low speed until well combined. Mix 3/4 cup toasted almonds into the batter.
Pour batter into prepared buttered pan, using spatula to helps spreading the batter in the pan. Scatter sliced strawberries and remaining 1/4 cup almonds over the batter in a baking pan.
Bake for about 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean or only with a few crumbs on it.
Dust with powdered sugar before cutting into slices. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
