Strawberry Shortcake (Vegan)

Vegan Strawberry ShortcakeStrawberry shortcake is such a refreshing spring/summer dessert.

And I’m so excited it is finally summer! Summer time means strawberries and strawberries mean strawberry shortcake! When I was little my Great Grandma took me strawberry picking every year. We even went picking after she lost her leg to diabetes! We brought her a stool to sit on and her and I would crawl through the field picking and picking. I remember rummaging through the fields with the smell of fresh strawberries filling the air. After we picked to our hearts content we took our bounty back home to make strawberry jam. To this day whenever I smell strawberries I think back to those days spent in the fields and in the kitchen with my Great Grandma.

Eric and I usually make jam around Christmas time, so I wanted to make a cake during the summer instead of jam. And thus this vegan strawberry shortcake was born! The cake and frosting work perfectly together along with the fresh strawberries. Look at these deliciuos berries and creamy frosting!

Ingredients
Pancakes
Strawberry Sauce
Vegan Whipped Cream
Servings: pancakes
Instructions
For the Strawberry Syrup
  1. In a small saucepan add 1 cup of hulled and sliced strawberries along with 3 tbsp of granulated sugar. Stir and simmer over medium/low heat for 20 minutes, stirring often.
For the Pancakes
  1. Mix flax egg and set aside to thicken for 5 minutes. In a medium bowl mix together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add in the almond milk followed by the oil, flax egg, vanilla and apple cider vinegar. Whisk until completely incorporated.
  2. Heat a large sauté pan containing 1 tbsp of oil until hot and then pour about 1/4 cup of batter in the pan and cook until bubbles form. Flip the pancake and cook for another few minutes until pancakes are done.
For Coconut Whipped Cream
  1. Add coconut cream, vanilla and powdered sugar in to a mixing bowl and whip on a high speed until peaks form. (Don't whip for too long. I have found too much whipping makes the whipped cream break).
