¼ cup sugar

1 cup plain flour

1 tbsp orange zest, finely grated

1 egg yolk

25g butter, melted

Preheat oven to 200°C. Place milk, yeast, and 1 tablespoon sugar in a small bowl and mix to combine. Set aside in a warm place for 5 minutes, or until foamy. Place remaining sugar, flour, and zest in a bowl; make a well in the centre. Add egg yolk, butter, and yeast mixture, and mix to form a dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 4-5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl and cover with a clean, damp cloth; set aside in a warm place to prove for 30 minutes.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface and place in the base of a 26cm pie dish. Brush edges with extra milk and sprinkle with sugar. 

To make topping, place almond meal, flour, butter, sugar, and egg in a bowl and mix to combine.

Spread brioche with almond mixture and top with strawberries. Drizzle with maple syrup and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Serve with mascarpone and extra maple syrup.
