Ginger Strawberries with Lemon Basil Cake

This light lemon basil cake makes a perfect base for the slightly spicy sweet ginger strawberries.
Servings: 5

Ingredients

  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • ~ ¼ cup F. Oliver’s Fresh Bright Basil EVOO
  • ~ ¼ cup healthy neutral vegetable oil
  • ½ cup F. Oliver’s Honeyed Ginger Balsamic
  • 2 cups ripe strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Prepare the lemon cake according to package instructions, substituting half the oil with F. Oliver’s Fresh Bright Basil EVOO (using healthy oil for the other half). Bake in a 13 x 9 pan.
  • Add ½ cup F. Oliver’s Honeyed Ginger Balsamic to a sauce pan and cook on medium low to reduce the balsamic by half. Add the strawberries, sugar, and salt and increase the heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Cool.
  • Slice the cake and serve with the gingered strawberries.

Notes

To increase the amount of strawberry topping, just increase the last four ingredients.
