I love to get creative with alcohol. I’m not a huge drinker, but I love rum cake, rum chata, and pretty much any sugary alcoholic item. So when I saw an angel food cake on sale at the store, I grabbed the strawberries and got to work experimenting with my liquor stash. Teehee.
I did feel a bit guilty so I saved the kids some regular fruit and cake- last time I made rum cake, my 2 year old grabbed his own plate and came up to me with the CUTEST face. Like “Cake please?” It was sooooo adorable and we gave him something else as a treat, but gosh did I feel guilty. I hate saying no when they ask so sweetly.
This sweet liquor strawberry shortcake is the perfect dessert to enjoy if you like experimenting with all sorts of different dessert liquors. I usually use store bought angel food cake, but you can make your own too!
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1.25 c of sliced strawberries
- 2 tbsp of liquor (plus some to pour on cake)
- Store bought or handmade angel food cake
- Whipped cream
- Mix your strawberries, liquor, and sugar.
- Let sit in refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Take a slice of cake, pour liquor on it.
- Add strawberries and whipped cream.
I tried three types of liquor and they were all excellent. I tried Rum Chata, Bailey’s Chocolate Cherry, and Bailey’s Vanilla Cinnamon. I just labeled my bowls by chalk markers so I could keep track of which was which.
