Review This Recipe
Nice light tasting finish to a summer meal
This dessert received high accolades from my dinner guests. This was an nice variation of strawberry shortcake with mango sauce and yummy wine marinated strawberries. Exciting flavor yet not too rich. It seemed that one mango didn't make quite enough sauce for 3 tablespoons per serving. I used 2 mangos. Pureed alone they were a little too thick so I added 1/2 cup apple juice. This provided more sauce, a little extra sweetness and a perfect consistency to drizzle over the cake. This was so flavorful, quick and easy, I will make this frequently while ripe strawberries are in season!!
