Deep Fried Strawberry Shortcakes

Have we ever talked about my love for strawberry shortcake? Our Sweet Basil Kitchen Cookbook has this recipe and our  lemon strawberry shortcake. I love it that much I had to have two recipes in it, haha.  So if that isn’t a hint enough to try it, TRY IT. But then I made this. Have mercy!! Fried strawberry shortcake is like the best day of your life, your first kiss, your wedding day and holding your first child for the first time (not the pregnancy or birth because heaven knows those aren’t easy) all wrapped into one. You guys, it’s DEEP FRIED STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKES. Enough said?

 

What Oil is Best for Deep Frying?

There’s no one oil that’s best for deep-frying, although vegetable, canola, sunflower and rice bran oil are all good, as they can be heated to high temperatures without burning.

Their neutral flavours also won’t affect the taste of the food.

Anyway, I told you in that post how Mom would make us strawberry shortcake with fresh berries and those little, round shortcakes (remember how they would leave a little cake on the cardboard and you could scrape it off and lick your fingers?), but did I tell you about the rest of the meal? Mom is a total sucker for fried chicken. Often we would go to the grocery store and they would be pumping out that fried chicken smell. We’d make it clear to the front door and then she would say, fried chicken and strawberry shortcake for dinner?

If only you could have seen our faces. HECK YES! It didn’t happen very often but when it was a go we were the best behaved kids ever through that entire grocery shopping trip just to make sure we wouldn’t risk her changing her mind. And yes, it was grocery store fried chicken, but back then it was seen as awesome that places were trying to help moms get dinner on the table and not at all gross that it was probably frozen fried chicken reheated.

And now I’m suddenly homesick for a warm summer day, a huge backyard to put out dinner on picnic tables and my family chowing down on fried chicken and strawberry shortcake. Looks like I know what I’m making on Sunday for dinner!

 

Can Dogs Eat Strawberries?

It may be hard or confusing to figure out which fruits and vegetables are safe for your dog (here’s a hint: grapes and raisins are on the no-no list), but there is a warm weather favorite that you can give your dog,STRAWBERRIES!

However you should not feed your dog canned or strawberries in syrup.

 

Deep Fried Donuts

This recipe uses canned biscuits made into deep fried donuts. You can use the flaky layers or southern, both work fine but the layers puff up the most. If you’re nervous about the centers being done, no worries, just cut out the donut holes like you would in a regular donut.

  1. SOOOOO GOOD!
    One of the kids won’t eat strawberries, so he went with caramel sauce instead. I was a little jealous 😉
    Another made a chocolate covered strawberry shortcake. Again, jealous.
    The “extras” got devoured with just cinnamon and sugar. Leftovers? Not a chance!
