Vegan Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 15 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 20 mins

Ingredients

3 cups (375g) Self Raising Flour (plus more for sprinkling)

1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 cup (112g) Vegan Butter/Margarine

1/4 cup (50g) Sugar or Caster Sugar*

3/4 cup (180ml) Soy Milk (plus more for bushing the tops)*

2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (Freshly Squeezed)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

16oz (450g) Fresh Strawberries (sliced, about 3 cups)

1/4 cup (50g) Sugar or Caster Sugar*

1 14oz (400ml) Can Coconut Cream (chilled overnight)

3 Tbsp Powdered Sugar

Instructions

1Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C)

2Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the salt and baking powder.

3Add the vegan butter or margarine and rub it in with your fingers until the entire mix is crumbly.

4Add in the sugar or caster sugar.

5Mix the lemon juice with the soy milk and allow to curdle into buttermilk. Add it in with the dry ingredients and mix in with a spoon.

6Add in the vanilla.

7Flour a surface and turn the dough out onto the surface. Add more flour as needed to stop it sticking to your hands and form the dough into a big ball. Flatten out the ball just enough to be able to cut out 4 cakes. Dip a smooth cutter in flour and then cut out the cakes and place them on a parchment lined baking tray. Roll the remaining dough into a big ball, flatten out again and cut out 2 cakes. Repeat for another 2 cakes and then whatever is left over will form the remaining shortcake.

8Brush the top of the shortcakes with soy milk and then place into the oven and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown on top.

9While the shortcakes are baking slice your strawberries and place into a big bowl, stir in the sugar and then place into the fridge.

10Prepare your whipped cream by removing the can of coconut cream from the fridge – being careful not to shake it. You’ll see the cream section will have risen to the top, scoop out only the cream part leaving the watery part behind in the can. Whip this up in an electric whisk until whipped. Add in the powdered sugar and whip again. For a full tutorial on making whipped cream, see here.

11When the shortcakes are baked, slice them in half and then layer with sweetened strawberries and whipped cream.
