Strawberry cake, elderberry and dill {sans gluten – vegan}

Génoise aux fraises

La saison des fraises est déjà bien entamée maintenant et pas mal de variétés arrivent sur les étals, il était temps pour moi de vous proposer une recette de gâteau aux fraises. Les fraises sont sûrement mes fruits préférés (enfin pas sûrement, elles le sont !), et cette passion est largement partagé par les enfants de la maison ! Il y a déjà pas mal de recettes de desserts aux fraises sur le blog mais j’avais envie de vous proposer

une version végétal et sans gluten un peu plus audacieuse cette année.

Une génoise moelleuse, strawberry jam, whipped cream and strawberries strawberries, all this to associate the strawberry, elderberry and dill. Oui, yes you read that right dill, we think more often of mint and basil for strawberries but they also go perfectly with dill, who will be happy to change from the association with pickles ! For the whipped cream, you will now easily find vegetable whipping alternatives in vegan stores, so don't hesitate !
