Sweet, fluffy angel food cake + plump, savory strawberries (I picked up a pound of strawberries this weekend for $0.99!!) topped with luscious, fresh whipped cream = a sweet, simple summer favorite.
1/2 inch thick sliced Angel Food Cake (thank you Betty Crocker!)
1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 c heavy cream
1 Tbsp vanilla sugar or 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract + 1 Tbsp sugar
Mix berries with 1 Tbsp sugar and let sit to draw out juices. Combine cream, vanilla sugar (or 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract + 1 Tbsp sugar) and beat at high speed until soft peaks form –it may take a few minutes depending on the humidity. I find using a cold metal bowl and cold cream speeds up the process. Top each slice of cake with 1 Tbsp strawberries with juice and a generous dollop of whipped cream.
Love to all,
