Summer Recipe Week! Strawberry Shortcake
Super simple recipe and turned out so good! My girlfriend made them and they looked so good. She found the recipe here. I changed it up a bit. With the potluck we did have whipped cream on our desserts as a little treat, so as pictured it is NOT vegan but my recipe without whipped cream IS vegan.
Gluten Free Shortcake
1/2 c vegan butter
1 c powder sugar
4 egg substitute: I used Ener-G Egg Substitute
1 tsp vanilla
1 c cornstarch or potatoe starch is you have a corn allergy
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12-muffin pan or use cupcake liners
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar, using electric mixer/kitchen aid.
Add the egg substitute and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy.
In a small bowl mix the cornstarch and baking powder together and add SLOWLY to the creamed mixture.
Mix until well blended. Fill the greased muffin tins half full.
Bake for 15 minutes. (Test with a toothpick, after 15 minutes, even if the top looks shiny).
Remove from the pan while still warm.
Serve topped with strawberries, and whipped cream.
