While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Don't judge a cake by its stature - June 14 is National Strawberry Shortcake Day!
It’s been said that Shakespeare named a character after shortcake long before it inspired a cartoon. This multi-layered desert has been around since about 1850 and usually a sure sign that warmer weather is on the way. It’s the perfect blend of buttery and creamy and sweet, and the different textures from each element make for a very satisfying treat.
Incorporating seasonal fruit into dessert is a great way to sweeten things up without adding sugar. What’s nice about strawberry shortcake is that it isn’t a formal, composed desert And when you’re done devouring its deliciousness, you’re sure to feel like a kid again - a little messy but content.
