Vegan Strawberry Shortcake served with Vegan Whipped Cream

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup almond meal
3 tablespoons turbinado sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tiny drop of almond extract
Parchment paper
3 cups strawberries, washed, hulled and quartered

Preparation

1
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
2
Add the sliced strawberries to a glass bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
3
Combine the flours, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized bowl and mix together well.
4
In a small bowl, add 1 teaspoon water and the sugar, and mix together a bit to help dissolve the sugar.
5
In a large bowl, combine the almond milk, vinegar, oil, sugar and almond extract. Whisk together.
6
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually add the wet ingredients. Mix everything together until combined.
7
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
8
Drop the batter by generous tablespoons, a few inches apart on the sheets (I recommend 5 per baking sheet).
9
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the shortcakes are just slightly golden.
10
Allow the shortcakes to cool, then slice them in half with a serrated knife.
11
Add a generous dollop of whipped topping to the bottom half, then a spoonful of strawberries on top of that. Top with the remaining shortcake half.
12
Add a bit more whipped topping to the top of the shortcake, and spoon a few of the strawberries over it. Serve on individual dessert plates.

 



About

As posted on my blog, Grab a Plate.
I started out a bit backwards with this recipe, having come across a recipe for vegan whipped cream from the blog, the Chemist's Daughter. Since strawberries are in season where I live, I wanted to use them to make something yummy. The whipped cream sounded so interesting (and enticing – especially paired with strawberries) that I had to try it. So strawberry shortcake it would be! Both recipes are very easy to make, and both are delicious!
