Strawberry Chiffon Shortcake

Strawberry Chiffon Shortcake

Rachel has an obsession with this food blog, so naturally she always wants to try out recipes.  I don’t blame her, the photos and ideas look so perfect.  So my sister-in-law had her 21st birthday a few days ago so Rachel set out to make her the strawberry chiffon shortcake from the blog for her.  I love strawberries and whipped cream (who doesn’t?) so I was sold on this cake the instant I saw the photo.  When she finished it last night we sliced into the tall, beautiful, 3-layer treat and enjoyed it with the birthday girl.  The cake was light and fluffy and the lemon zest did indeed offset the missing flavor of butter (as is suggested in the blog).  The whipped cream and fresh strawberries added to the flavor and texture to create a delicate and delicious cake.  We decided the only think we’d do different is put whipped cream around the sides next time.

Presenting the cake

I can’t wait until tonight when we get to eat another piece (leftovers!).  I don’t think I’ll post the directions here because Smitten Kitchen’s are so complete (and Rachel doesn’t change recipes like I do), so check out our photos and then make it for yourself by clicking the link above.
