Strawberry Tahini Shortcake
This strawberry tahini shortcake is surprisingly easy to whip up and has all the flavor!
It's strawberry season and the berries couldn't taste any better! I thought, why not use them in one of my favorite cakes - the tahini yogurt cake from Bon Appetit! I'm calling this a shortcake because I topped it with whipped cream and more berries. Generally, a shortcake would be a little lighter and get its fat from butter (instead of yogurt), but I needed an excuse to make this tahini cake again.
Honestly, I wasn't 100% these flavors would work. My husband actually suggested I try this flavor combo and I'm so glad I did - because I've eaten a piece of this cake every day since I made it and it's moist, complex, and delicious.
I'm showcasing strawberries in this recipe because I'm participating in a roundup with other food bloggers on seasonal strawberry recipes - you can check out all their beautiful posts on Instagram using the hashtag #strawberriesarethejam - hope you enjoy!
