EXCELLENT! Strawberry season is here and this is but one great way to use them. I read all 66 reviews. :-) So I decided to replace the granulated white sugar topping with brown sugar and I added just one more tablespoon of cold butter. I used chopped pecans. I included in the topping a teaspoon of cinnamon and a few grates of fresh nutmeg. I used the ol' pastry cutter to cut in the cold butter I'd cubed up and it came together perfectly. The batter I left as is, except for 1/4 tsp. of cardamom (a nice touch!). And I did add the optional vanilla. I used 2 cups of sliced strawberries, which was plenty. I used a glass Pyrex 8x8 dish, and it took about 42 minutes. I checked it after 40, and it looked and tested a little wet. Two minutes more and it was perfect. Served it with a big scoop of fresh vanilla bean ice cream. It was delicious! Thanks for posting!!!!! So easy to put together (which I did in advance, before dinner and baked it off later in the same evening).
