After a week and a half vacation during which I got to spend a delightful few days wandering through the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I am back and ready to blog. Also, I can't wait until I figure out a better formatting for this page. But that is a post for another time. Onward to the recipe.
A little background for this recipe, I have watched an inordinate amount of cooking and food channel shows in the past few years, including a delightful show called the Great British Bake Off. A few months back I heard the term 'everlasting syllabub' and since I didn't know what it was, felt compelled to not only research it but put together my own spin the generally alcoholic dessert.
Instead of a drink, which is what a syllabub is depending on where you get your recipes from, I decided to make this more of a whipped cream and layer it with fresh strawberries and lemon curd.
- juice from 1 lemon
- zest of 1 lemon
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup sweet white wine (I used a moscato d'asti and made it strong, some may prefer less alcohol)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar (icing sugar)
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream
- lemon curd
- strawberries, washed and sliced.
Though I think next time I'm going to layer in angel food cake as well.
