Method

  1. Cut the tortilla wraps in half
  2. Use the wrap to lune a ramakin making sure that you do not damage the wrap leaving any holes and set to one side
  3. Then put the strawberries, white sugar, water and lemon juice into a pan
  4. Cook on a low heat for 5 minutes until the strawberries soften and a syrup forms
  5. Spoon a 4th of the strawberries into each ramakin leaving as much of the syrup in the pan as possible
  6. Then fold over the edges tucking the wrap into a parcel
  7. Then in the same saucepan add the butter, brown sugar to the leftover syrup and combine over a medium heat
