Delighted Easter! We’re celebrating with these super lovable, unfussy strawberry shortcakes!
This recipe is straightforward peasy. I’ve been strike with a wholly miserable chilly (make sure you forgive any errors in this post )) this week and even I managed to whip these up with no issue. Effortless brief-bread shortcake, sweet strawberries, and clouds of coconut whip. Delicious, idiot-proof (messy) desserts are the ideal, are not they?
To start out, we’re going to skinny slice and prepare a pint of strawberries (PS: This is a excellent put to use up unsightly, overripe strawberries and no one will be any the wiser!) Based on how sweet your strawberries are, just increase 2-4 tbsp sugar, combine ’em up, and enable ’em sit although you whip with each other the shortcake.
This shortcake is super straightforward. I went with a sweetened up, lemon-absolutely free variation of our scone recipe. When you roll out the dough, preserve it wonderful and thick for fluffy, towering stacks of shortcake.
At the time the strawberries have introduced their juices and softened up, you can mix about one/three to one/2 of the strawberries. I like to combine some of the sweet blended strawberries into the coconut whip, but that is thoroughly optional!
Now on to the assembly! Use three half “biscuits” for each and every serving of shortcake. Now for the layers! Begin with a layer of shortcake, major with a spoonful of strawberries, major with a dollop of coconut whip, and repeat. End with a final layer of shortcake (ideally a major, not a bottom) a dollop of whip and a slice of strawberry. Acquired any fresh new mint on hand? Add a sprig for a showstopping dessert presentation. Love!
