Vegan Strawberry Shortcake served with Vegan Whipped Cream


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup almond meal
3 tablespoons turbinado sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tiny drop of almond extract
Parchment paper
3 cups strawberries, washed, hulled and quartered


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Add the sliced strawberries to a glass bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
Combine the flours, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized bowl and mix together well.
In a small bowl, add 1 teaspoon water and the sugar, and mix together a bit to help dissolve the sugar.
In a large bowl, combine the almond milk, vinegar, oil, sugar and almond extract. Whisk together.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually add the wet ingredients. Mix everything together until combined.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Drop the batter by generous tablespoons, a few inches apart on the sheets (I recommend 5 per baking sheet).
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the shortcakes are just slightly golden.
Allow the shortcakes to cool, then slice them in half with a serrated knife.
Add a generous dollop of whipped topping to the bottom half, then a spoonful of strawberries on top of that. Top with the remaining shortcake half.
Add a bit more whipped topping to the top of the shortcake, and spoon a few of the strawberries over it. Serve on individual dessert plates.


As posted on my blog, Grab a Plate.
I started out a bit backwards with this recipe, having come across a recipe for vegan whipped cream from the blog, the Chemist's Daughter. Since strawberries are in season where I live, I wanted to use them to make something yummy. The whipped cream sounded so interesting (and enticing – especially paired with strawberries) that I had to try it. So strawberry shortcake it would be! Both recipes are very easy to make, and both are delicious!
