Fresh Strawberry Sauce

This post was originally titled “Angel Food Cake with Fresh Strawberry Sauce” But it was less about the Angel Food Cake and more about the Strawberry Sauce, so I omitted the cake part. Let’s be honest – if I want Angel Food Cake, I’m just going to go buy one and put all my love into the sauce. The great thing about a standard Angel Food Cake is that they’re almost virtually fat free. When trying to control what you eat, watch your calorie and fat intake and still satisfy some cravings, this is really a great option. The serving sizes are large as a typical cake is usually 1/12 or 1/16, but this cake is 1/6! I don’t know how accurate that will be once I make a GF version, but we shall see. The strawberry sauce is super easy to make, and you can use any fruit you want. I usually use strawberries and blueberries. Fat free and delicious? I’ll take it!

INGREDIENTS
2 pints Strawberries – Fresh – Sliced
3/4 cup Sugar or Splenda
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract

METHOD
-Start strawberry sauce 15 minutes prior to serving. In medium saucepan, put all your sliced strawberries. Slice them as big as you want, making some little so they boil down. Save a handful of slices to add closer to the end.
-On medium/low heat, start boiling the strawberries. They’ll start to break down and become juicy. When you see juices forming, add half your sugar. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved and let cook for another minute or so, stirring occasionally. Add the last bit of sugar, let dissolve and then add the remaining strawberries. Cook for 1 minute and remove from heat.
-You can serve the strawberry sauce hot or cool, whichever you prefer.

NOTES
-Next time I make this I’ll try using splenda to cut down on the points from the carbs. I’ll report back!
