Hey everyone! So tomorrow is my friend Erika's birthday and she asked me for a strawberry shortcake recipe so here it is!
Vegan Strawberry Shortcake
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup margarine
2/3 cup belsoy cream (found in the organic/health aisle)
1 overripe banana, mashed (can put in microwave to soften it up if it is not an overripe banana)
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
3 tablespoons white sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and baking powder. Cut in butter with two knives (or by hand). Stir in belsoy cream and mashed banana. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 2 minutes. Press into a half-inch thick sheet. Cut into squares (or roll into balls). Place on baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes, or until golden. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons sugar over sliced berries (more if you want).
Let shortcakes cool before splitting and filling with sugared berries. (can add Strawberry Banana Soft Serve [3 strawberries + 1 frozen banana, processed in food processor] on top)
