Hello foodies! As a young Chinese cook, I’m delighted to share one of my all-time favorite desserts – Strawberry Sando. This delightful Japanese treat consists of fluffy white bread, whipped cream and fresh, juicy strawberries that will make your taste buds sing with delight.
Make a delicious Strawberry Sando by starting with fresh and ripe strawberries that are firm, plump, and bright red in color. If you can find local in-season strawberries, even better! Rinse the strawberries under cool water before patting them dry with a paper towel. Next, remove their stems and slice them into thin pieces.
The next step in whipping cream making is beating it until it has thick and glossy peaks. Use heavy cream that contains at least 30% fat for optimal whipping ability; optionally, you may add sugar or vanilla extract for additional flavor if desired.
Now it’s time to assemble the Strawberry Sando. Cut some soft white bread into thick slices and toast them lightly; you want the bread slightly crisp on the outside but still fluffy and soft inside. Spread a generous layer of whipped cream onto one side, covering it evenly. Place another layer of strawberries atop that, again covering everything evenly. Continue layering until your sandwich reaches desired thickness – some people like more layers of both, while others opt for thinner sandwiches with just one layer each.
Finish off the Strawberry Sando sandwich by topping off with another layer of whipped cream on top of the strawberries, followed by another slice of toast bread. You may sprinkle powdered sugar or add fresh strawberry slices for decoration if desired, and then cut it in half to enjoy!
The Strawberry Sando is the ideal dessert for any special occasion. Not only is it simple to make, but it looks beautiful too – not to mention delicious! The creamy sweetness of whipped cream balances perfectly with the tart tartness of strawberries in this delectable combination of flavors and textures that will have you wanting more. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
