There are so many reasons to love strawberries, from its taste, scent, color, shape, and the amazing nutritional benefits it gives us. Personally, the best reason is it is my annual birthday cake. Born in late May, these gorgeous berries are at their peak of sweetness, ready to make the perfect cake. Strawberry Short Cake
The season is short which has me appreciate them all the more. I add them to my affordable luxuries.
If you want to reap all the impressive benefits, be sure to get organically grown strawberries. All non organic berries are sprayed directly on the fruit with pesticides , adding them onto the dirty dozen list of ingredients.
Great news for all the vegans out there. You can easily substitute eggs, milk, and butter with adaptable ingredients like oat milk, unsweetened apple sauce for the eggs, and a vegan butter. Happy baking. ~
