Another one of my favourite things: Strawberries and Cream

Strawberries and Cream!!!

Sounds so cliche right? But this is absolutely one of my favourite (and easy to make) desserts. I sometimes hesitate sharing a grand secret like this wondering if it will take away some of the magic. But since good things must be shared, here goes...

It's terribly simple to prepare.

Let's start with the strawberries... chop up about half a punnet of strawberries (remove the leaves of course), sprinkle with some balsamic vinegar or lemon juice and sugar, then set aside.

I then whip up about half a cup of cream (or you can use the instant canned whipped cream). Fold the strawberries into the cream, then dollop into little teacups/bowls to serve.

To add a touch of class (and extra sinfulness) I sometimes fold in some broken up pieces of meringue in as well. I also like to sprinkle some chopped nuts on top.

Absolutely divine. I'm gonna make another batch for dessert tonight!
