Sweet and Savory Shortcake
The textures are great along with the flavor. The cake has a crunchy outside and the bacon is crunchy and you have all those sweet strawberries and the delicate whipped topping.
It makes for a delightfully nice change from your basic shortcake
How to Make Sweet and Savory Shortcake
- Add sugar to the sliced strawberries and put into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to mascerate.
- Slice 4 slices of angel food cake about 1/2 inch thick and butter both sides. On the top side sprinkle with brown sugar. After I sliced mine I took a biscuit cutter and cut them in circles. You do not have to.
You can grill it or just put it in your skillet with the brown sugar side up and brown on both sides. Once the plain butter side is browned when you flip the side with the brown sugar over it will not burn. Takes about 2 minutes.
- You will want to fry your bacon until it is very crisp and you can crumble it. Let the bacon cool and crumble. Drain the bacon grease out of your skillet The skillet will look wet but just set it aside to be used in a couple of minutes.
- Put them in the fridge to cool.
After cooling place them on the toasted angel food cake slices and top with whipped cream.
