I bought a punnet of what will probably be some of the last local strawberries of summer and decided to try a recipe from Lorraine Pascale's book Fast, Fresh and Easy Food. There is no comparison between the delicious sweetness of seasonal strawberries and those that have accumulated air miles.
Strawberry and Cream Mini Cakes combine the sweetness of good quality strawberry jam (I used Bonne Maman) with whipped cream and the fresh strawberries. I did not sweeten the cream, as I felt that there was probably enough sugar without adding more and I also left out the sugar syrup and white chocolate drizzles, but if you want to go overboard with sweetness, then follow the original recipe.
Lorraine's book is full of inspirational and tasty recipe ideas. I have others bookmarked to try when I have more time to spend in the kitchen. All of her recipes are reliable, well-described and easy to follow. This book is a great addition to my kitchen library.
