Happy Valentines Day from jLAmode! IMG_6325 [vegan]

Here's a vegan and dairy version of a classic - with a twist.  Rather than baking a shortcake, fry it!

First, add sugar to diced strawberries to begin the maceration process - it draws the liquid out of the berries making a natural, flavourful syrup.


Combine flour, malt, sugar, coconut oil, salt, baking powder and nutmeg.


Add soy milk and vanilla extract and mix just until combined.


It should be a very thick batter.  Scoop spoonfulls into medium hot oil and fry until golden brown.


Drain and allow to cool for a few moments.


Plate with strawberries and soft-whiped cream (or omit for vegan)
