Welcome to the Hymns & Home Weekly Recipe Share!
I’ve been running this little feature for several months in my Instagram stories and just last week switched to a post format. I’ve also been trying to come up with a way to include it on the blog – and here we finally are! Every Sunday, I share a recipe that I love (sometimes by me, often by other people) and tell you a bit about why I love it, plus any tips I may have. Featured photos are always of my own finished product. I also invite you to send me any recipe you think I should try! If I like it, I may feature it and give you a shout out!
This week’s recipe is “Homemade Strawberry Cake” by Sally at Sally’s Baking Addiction, with “Strawberry Whipped Cream” by Lindsay at Life, Love, and Sugar. We had this as our Fourth of July dessert and it was a hit! I used whipped cream icing instead of Sally’s recommended cream cheese frosting because my husband won’t touch anything that has cream cheese in it. My Mother-In-Law doesn’t like butter-based icings, so whipped cream was a safe choice! I have to tell you, though, they paired really well together!
Here’s a tip: If you over-whip your whipped cream and it starts to look curdled (grainy, watery), don’t despair! Gently whisk in a tablespoon or two of cold whipping cream a little at a time and it should smooth back out.
I love to try new recipes! Feel free to send some my way, either in comments below or message me on social media!
