Celebrate the joy of summer with our Fresh Strawberry Shortcakes with Yogurt Cream recipe. This refreshing and delightful dessert features sweet, juicy strawberries nestled in tender, homemade shortcakes and topped with a dollop of creamy, tangy yogurt cream. It’s a mouthwatering combination of textures and flavors that truly showcases the essence of the strawberry season.
The shortcakes are made with unbleached all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of kosher salt, creating a light, fluffy, and slightly sweet base. The addition of Brown Cow Whole Milk Plain Yogurt, cream, an egg, and a hint of freshly grated lemon zest gives the shortcakes a wonderfully rich and tangy undertone. Each shortcake is then brushed with cream and sprinkled with turbinado sugar, providing a sweet, crunchy finish.
The stars of this dessert are the macerated strawberries, which are simply quartered strawberries mixed with sugar, pure vanilla extract, and a small pinch of salt. This process draws out the strawberries’ natural juices, enhancing their sweetness and creating a delicious, syrupy mixture.
The final touch to these delectable shortcakes is the soft whipped yogurt cream. It’s a luscious blend of heavy whipping cream and granulated sugar, gently folded with more Brown Cow Whole Milk Plain Yogurt for a creamy and slightly tart finish.
This Fresh Strawberry Shortcakes with Yogurt Cream recipe serves eight and takes just 50 minutes to prepare, making it an excellent choice for entertaining or a family dessert.
