When it comes to baking things, there are two different types of treats that we love most: rich chocolate desserts or delicious baked goods that taste like strawberries. We can seldom choose between the two if we have the option of either, but in our own kitchen, we’ll choose something strawberry based any time that we suddenly have access to good strawberry jam. The problem then is choosing what we actually want to make, since there are just so many delicious options for strawberry desserts!
Just in case you’re also a huge lover of strawberry jam but you also need some guidance when it comes to picking what you’ll make, here are 15 of the best recipes we’ve tried so far!
1. Strawberry jam Swiss roll cake
Do you remember eating those store packaged Swiss roll cakes that are often sold for kids’ school lunches when you were a kid and totally loving them? Well, if you thought those were delicious, wait until you’ve tried the homemade version! Cooking Channel TV guides you through the process of making the flat sponge cake, spreading it with jam and whipped cream, and rolling it carefully so the inside looks like a spiral. Top it off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar!
2. Strawberry jam panna cotta in a jar
Have you always been a big fan of making individual serving desserts because you can put them in your fridge for later and then take them out and help yourself as you please after dinner in weeks to come? In that case, we have a feeling you’re going to love these little single serving strawberry panna cotta jars from Boulder Locavore! They show you how to mix the cream and layer it over a generous helping of your favourite sweet strawberry jam, then pop the lid on until you’re ready to eat it.
3. Homemade strawberry jam cookies
Have you ever had delicious store bought cookies that have a layer of jam and cream or vanilla icing in the middle of two sugar or shortbread cookies? We’ve had those as well and they are completely delicious, but they’re nothing compared to how incredibly yummy the homemade version of the very same idea is. Check out how Food Platter made their own strawberry jam cookies from scratch.
4. Fruity strawberry cake
Have you always loved cakes that have a denser, chewier texture to them? Then why not combine that texture with your love for sweet strawberry jam? We’ve tried this delicious fruit cake from Fifth Floor Kitchen before and loved it so much that we’ve actually made it again and again since then! It’s a popular recipe for arties and family get togethers every time we make it.
