The only thing to worry about when it comes to this strawberry shortcake recipe is that prep will take a little while - but if you start it the day before you want to put it in your face, you'll be fine! :D
Step 1: Ingredients:
- 1 pound strawberries
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 14 oz can low fat coconut milk
- 1 14 oz can full fat coconut milk
- a few tablespoons of sugar
Step 2: Prep Work!
- Put the can of full fat coconut milk into the fridge to firm up.
- Cut the tops off the strawberries and quarter them, and then mix them with three tablespoons of sugar. Cover them and put them in the fridge!
Step 3: Prepare the Batter and Preheat the Oven!
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and remaining two tablespoons of sugar. Then add in 1 1/2 cups of low fat coconut milk and mix together until just combined. Don't over mix it - be gentle. :D
Step 4: Bake!
Bake it for 22-25 minutes, or until golden on the top. :)
Pop it out of the pan and let it cool for a few minutes on a wire rack.
Step 5: Serve!
Pull the full fat coconut milk out of the fridge - don't shake it! Open it up and spoon the thick cream off the top and into a bowl. If you've got good coconut milk you should have about 3/4 can of thick cream! You can use the rest of the thinner milk to make something else.
Spoon a couple tablespoons of sugar into it and mix it lightly. Don't worry if it gets runny - it's still delicious!
Spoon some strawberries and their juice onto the bottom half of the short cake and top with the coconut cream. Then put the other half of the shortcake on top and spoon over more strawberries.
