Strawberries

Marble Angle Food Cake with Strawberries

After many hours of dreamily looking at strawberry dessert recipes, I settled on two. First up was a marble angle food cake, which necessitated a new angle food pan. I’m not a big fan of having such specific, one use, items, but it sure made all the difference. The cake came out tall, spongy and moist. I halved the strawberries and sprinkled them with just a touch of sugar. My original plan had been to make a rhubarb sauce as well, but that didn’t come together. Still an overall success.

Next up was a classic strawberry rhubarb pie. I used an Epicurious recipe, Lattic Topped Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. The only change I made was to use a 10 inch pan instead of the 9 inch. I have no idea how it would have fit in a smaller pan. The crust came out flaky and lightly sweet, while the cinnamon brought the fruit together. The fresh strawberries shined through in this pie. Yum!

  1. These desserts looks lovely Marijka! I was also in search of a recipe for using my CSA rhubarb and farmer’s market strawberries recently but was taking a much lazier approach. This pudding cake was delicious and really easy to put together – overall very satisfying!: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Rhubarb-Strawberry-Pudding-Cake-238103
