This sounds “gross” (as Emma would say), but it’s the simplest dessert ever whether served alone, over ice cream or over ice cream and cake. Sometimes, for a last-minute dinner-party dessert, I get Bruce to run to the supermarket and buy an angel food cake from the bakery section and some strawberry ice cream. I hollow out the cake from the bottom, fill with slightly melted strawberry ice cream, put a bottom layer back on…and freeze. Then I serve with the macerated berries on top. For a non-chocolate dessert, Strawberry-Ice-Cream Angel Food Cake with Balsamic-Macerated Strawberries is pretty good! Don’t despair, chocoholics: You can also fill an angel food cake in the same way with chocolate ice cream and serve smothered with hot fudge.
1 pint strawberries
1 t. sugar
1 T balsamic vinegar, or balsamic glaze (my fave!)
Wash and slice berries. Add the sugar and balsamic vinegar, and allow to rest at least one hour.
