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. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Combine strawberries, cup of sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl. Let them rest while you prepare the whipped cream. The strawberries will let off a sweet syrup or juice, which will be important for the parfaits.
  • 2
    Pour the whipping cream and 1/4 cup of sugar in a large bowl and beat it with a hand blender at high speed for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cream is thick and forms soft peaks. Add the vanilla extract, and mix it well.
  • 3
    Constructing the parfaits: Drop a few pound cake cubes into the bottom of a glass. Cover the with some strawberries and syrup they left off, and then top them off with 1 or 2 tablespoons of whipped cream. Repeat with another layer of pound cake, strawberries and whipped cream.
