I love and I mean LOVE Spinach. This dish takes it to a whole other level. My version uses 3 levels of phyllo pastry also spelled filo or fillo. Seasoned spinach that has the taste and aroma of onions, dill, and feta cheese in between crispy flakiness. One bite and you will be hooked for life. Serve as an excellent appetizer or if you are me 🙂 HAHA You will eat this for dinner. My recipe has been twinked over the years placing it as one of my go to recipes for small and large occasions.
This cake is absolute heaven. Lightly sweet with full strawberry flavor. A nice twist on your traditional strawberry shortcake. Has the hint of vanilla in the cake that is light and airy, the layer has fresh strawberry reduction which adds just the right amount of sweetness, top this with fresh cut strawberries and beautiful whipped cream and the outside?? Well nothing short of amazing since this is Swiss Meringue Buttercream and that is not your typical buttercream by any means of the imagination. Put them all together and you have a burst of yumminess all in one bite.
This naturally sweet reduction can be used for so many purposes. Excellent on toast, between layers of cake as in my Vanilla Sponge Strawberry Cream Cake where it adds just the right amount of something to the layers of fresh strawberries or I have also used this as a filling in cupcakes for a nice sweet surprise. Using honey as my primary sweetener adds just the right amount sweet to an already perfect fruit. 🙂
