For Strawberry Day, Strawberry Picking Day, or National Strawberry Month, here are some easy and tasty recipes, using the wonderful strawberry!
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.
SUMMER BERRY GRIESTORTE
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.
Examples To Use Strawberry Reduction
EASY STRAWBERRY MOUSSE
Try this old rationing style recipe for a light strawberry mousse. Can easily be made vegetarian with veggie jelly. See below, where I made in glass ramekin dishes.
Ideas For Serving With Strawberries
RASPBERRYBERRY SWIRL VICTORIA SANDWICH CAKE
This recipe has a raspberry jam swirl through the sponge, but you could easily use strawberry jam and decorate with fresh strawberries and cream, (made her by Mrs D).

There is also a cupcake version – go to Raspberry Ripple cupcake recipe
Serve With British Scones
Here’s my popular Scones recipe, made by Mrs D, and served with strawberries as well as strawberry preserve from Lidl.
Make your own strawberry jam using my Jam recipe, and serve with scones.
CROWN LAYERED PAVLOVA

GENOISE SPONGE LAYER CAKE WITH FRESH CREAM SUMMER FRUITS
Here Mrs D used my recipe to make a basic Genoise sponge cake & decorated with fresh cream and summer fruits -especially strawberries!!
See below the OLD video of how to make the Genoise sponge –
PROPER GOOEY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES
Here Mrs D stacked my brownie recipe into a cake and took it up a notch by dipping strawberries in chocolate as decoration.
Go to my different brownie recipes including browned butter hazelnut, chocolate orange & seasonal brownies.
