4. Strawberry & White Chocolate Mousse Cake

"This cake was super easy and very impressive looking." Judrop23

Simple, yummy and also very yummy - too many yummys? No chance! This had me swooning like an Edwardian lady with a new extra-slimming corset. It's called a mousse cake but it could also be called a no-bake cheesecake.


As it's a cheese cake with UK origins the recipe calls for McVitie's Digestive Biscuits, if those aren't immediately available to you one of the best alternatives are Carr's whole wheat cracker (McVitie's Digestives are available in the US at Amazon
Making the cake involves crushing the biscuits and mixing with melted butter to form the base then refrigerating for half an hour to make it solid. Blast some of the strawberries, add cream and soft cheese before combining with some melted chocolate and pouring the mixture onto the base. Leave it to chill overnight, then use the remaining chocolate and strawberries to beautify it. Deliciousness!

Easy Strawberry Mousse

5. Simple Strawberry Mousse

"Love these strawberry mousses! They look delicious and really like how quick and easy they are to make!" Jess

This is a deliciously simple 4-ingredient mousse. All you need is pureed strawberries, powdered sugar (aka icing sugar), vanilla extract and whipping cream.

The recipe suggests strawberry sauce but pureeing fresh strawberries is better, best to do that first so you're ready to add them later. Whisk the whipping cream until it's forming strong peaks then add the sugar and vanilla. Once that's mixed in, we just fold the strawberry puree in gently so the cream doesn't over mix or begin to fall.
That's the main job done, all that's left is adding the mousse to glasses or bowls and cooling for an hour. Then it's up to you to tune into your inner Salvador Dali and decorate with a flourish.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Chilling time: 60 minutes

6. Simple Strawberry Cobbler Recipe

"Super easy and delicious with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Thanks once again!!" LonghornMama

I love cobbler! There I've said it, and, I feel better. This one will take just 10 minutes to prepare then you pop it in the oven to come out piping hot ready for dinner (it might need a little cool down before serving).


Get the oven pre-heating, and begin adding sliced strawberries to your baking dish. Then in a bowl mix the flour, sugar and baking powder together and then add an egg. The mixture is now worked until crumbly and added on top of the strawberries. Add a few cubes of butter and that's it ready to go in the oven. As the title says - simple strawberry cobbler!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
Total time: 60 minutes

Nice and Simple Strawberry Crumble

7. Strawberry and Almond Crumble

"This is one of my most favorite things....ever. I make it all the time. Just brilliant. It's exactly like Nigella said: its English summer on a winter's day." paultpeden


Similar to the cobbler but this crumble has the added almond taste to possibly take it up a notch. The preparation may even be simpler than the cobbler.

Hull the strawberries, pop them in your bowl and add sugar, almonds and vanilla extract. Then prepare the crumble mixture by rubbing butter into a mixture of flour and baking powder. Add the crumble on top of the strawberry mix, flatten it down a bit and make sure the covering is equal then pop it in a pre-heated oven for about 30 minutes or until the crumble has turned a delicious golden brown. Take out and cool and that is it, simple!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Cooling off period: 10 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
