The one dessert that reminds me most of my childhood in the United States is the Strawberry Shortcake, a rich and creamy cake full of whipped cream and strawberries. Now that I am a mom, I enjoy preparing it for my kids, especially since they are so crazy about strawberries and cream. Since I can’t find the exact cake I used to have, I use vanilla panque, or pound cake. Sometimes I just serve the panque with strawberries and whipped cream right on top. But my kids’ favorite way to enjoy strawberry shortcake is in a parfait.
