Strawberry Recipes

So there really is a ‘Day’ for every type of food or bake. You just have to Google it 🙂 So in honour of STRAWBERRY DAY I have listed below all the recipes involving strawberries in some way. Further down, I have also added some recipes with other fruits, that would work well with strawberries as a substitution.

Not Just A Summer Fruit

Contrary to common believe, strawberries are not a summer fruit. With there being over 100 species and subspecies, as well as being in season at different times, in different cities and countries, they are in season longer than we think.

Try my fruit covered Genoise cream cake, that is so simple to make. Make a smaller or taller cake & decorate how you wish.

STRAWBERRY REDUCTION – A Concentrated Puree For Baking

My lesson on making a concentrated strawberry puree (also known as a strawberry reduction), to produce a deeper flavour and colour, than a simple puree. Use in your buttercream, as just one example.

Here are some recipes developed or tested by two of my friends & fellow food bloggers – Sally Newton @ Bewitching Kitchen & Tanya Clark Ott @ Global Bakes. You might recognise them, as they both were bakers on 2019’s series/season of The Great American Baking Show Holiday Edition. Here are some of their recipes on their websites.
