Easy Strawberry Shortcake Shortcut

Easy Strawberry Shortcake Shortcut

This is a simple dessert, I made from a store bought cake shell called a ‘flan’ shell, or you could use any type of sponge as the base. For my American friends, a simple angel food cake would work perfectly or better yet some pre-made biscuits. The important preparation is the strawberries.

2 large boxes of strawberries
1 flan base, angel food cake, biscuits etc..
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
¼ c granulated sugar
1 can of whipped cream (or whip some yourself!)

To Start:
Wash and discard any moldy or ugly strawberries.
Slice off the tops and slice any way you’d like and put them in a large bowl.
Add the sugar and the balsamic vinegar, and stir until mixed well.
(I let the sugar mixture to set about 1 hour mixing frequently, the idea is to draw out the juice in the strawberries)

To Finish:
On the base that you chose, spoon some of the juices to moisten, next swirl on a layer of whipped cream.
Next add a layer of strawberries and then a layer of whipped cream and continue until ingredients are finished.
Next spoon the juice over the top. And you’re done!
