Sally's Baking Addiction: Baking With Strawberries

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

One of my daughter's favorite blogs is Sally's Baking Addiction.  When the cookbook came out I surprised her with a copy, and she was so happy to get it.  We've already cooked a couple of recipes out of it, and last week we baked Sally's Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes for a little celebration for Finlay's Homecoming and my grandmother's 94th birthday.

The cupcakes are topped with strawberry whipped cream instead of icing.  We had some leftover whipped cream for strawberries.

The cupcakes were a hit!

Have you bought a wonderful cookbook lately?

Until next time...

  1. I forgot that I did buy a little sweets cookbook the other day from the discount table at B&N...mmmmmmmm...better not get that out right now!

  2. That's a lot of yummy in one post. I feel the need for sugar now. :)

    The cupcakes and the doughnuts both sound delicious.

  3. Yummy! Such a great idea to use the whip cream rather than traditional frosting. I like your donuts too:) xxleslie

  4. The cupcakes look amazing. I've just been watching endless episodes of "The Great British Bake-off"

  5. These strawberry delectables sound delicious! This looks like a super-fun cookbook!

    Just a little FYI: The restaurant our son is associated with is due to open in your neck-of-the-woods in late June (I think I have the time right) in Lenox Square (again, I think I have that right). It's called True Food Kitchen. There are already 7 "True Foods" located in AZ, CA, CO & TX. Either Atlanta or Houston will be #8, but then there are another three or four due to open this year. Our son is a very busy boy and spends a lot of time on planes. I just thought you might be interested since you are a former Scottsdale girl!

  6. Love, love, love Sally! The cupcakes look wonderful... and wow, 94 years, that's amazing!

  7. I don't buy cookbooks since I don't cook, but I have enjoyed some wonderful meals Steve has created this week.

  8. Oh that looks like a wonderful cookbook! I love, love, love cookbooks & tend to read them like novels. That being said, I have been dieting since January & staying away from my cookbook obsession because of it. :(

  9. RJ,
    No, I haven't bought a coook book since the last Ina Garten "Foolproof" cookbook. She has a new cookbook coming out in October. The other cookbook that has tempted me is "Surprise Inside" cake cookbook. When you cut a three-layer cake you might find a heart or rainbow of bright colors inside. I'm curious how it's done, but I don't need the calories!

  10. Strawberry cupcakes - yum!!! They are my favorite berry. My husband is the baker in our family, and he's made some awesome sweet treats from the Miette Pastry Shop cookbook.

  11. Oh how special! I bet your grandma loved it. Isn't it great to have a grandmother around still. Mine just turned 90 last December. Strawberries is one of my favorite fruits, strawberry anything is yum-o.

    No, no new cookbooks I have purchased. I found a few freebies I downloaded but I am not too impressed, maybe this is why they were free. LOL

  12. Wow, your cupcakes look delicious! I don't believe I have ever tried strawberry whipped cream. Thank you for sharing them.

  13. omg omg omg!!!
    i love how all this looks
    i can't have any of it:(
    but it's great to look at pictures and drool, lol!!
