Strawberry Shortcake with Vanilla Cream Sauce

Strawberry Shortcake with Vanilla Cream Sauce

Last summer our family went on a vacation to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina—thanks to some of our friends here in Utah who own a beautiful condo there, right on the water, and they offered to let us use it.  We had a wonderful time, and one night we ate dinner at the Bonefish Grill.  I know they have locations all over the country, but they don’t have any here in Utah, so we had never been there before.  The food was fantastic, and even though we were full, we decided to order some desserts and share them.  My husband ordered their strawberry shortcake which has a vanilla cream sauce.  I tasted it, and oh my goodness. . . Let me tell you, strawberry shortcake is good, but the vanilla cream sauce is what takes it over the top.

I decided right then and there that I needed to come up with a recipe for Strawberry Shortcake with Vanilla Cream Sauce.  After we got back home, I started working on it.  It took me a few times to get all of the components just right, but I think I got it!  This is a really yummy dessert!  Thanks, Bonefish Grill!

  3. What a beautiful strawberry shortcake!

  4. Thanks, Dina!

  5. Do you put leftover sauce in frig and then warm up a little the next day?

  6. Amy, yes you can do that. Here’s how I fix the leftovers: I cut a slice of the shortcake and put it in a bowl. Then I put some of the cold vanilla sauce on top of it. Heat that part in the microwave. Then add your strawberries and whipped cream after you take it out of the microwave. It works great and will be just as delicious as it was on the first day.

  7. I’ve been making this recipe for about a year and can not find enough great things to say about it. This is the number one dessert my family and friends ask me to make. I’m making it tonight for some friends of mine (it’s their 13 wedding anniversary). Sent my hubby to the store to gather ingredients and he came back with double of all the ingredients **hint-hint** for me to make two strawberry short cakes, one for our friends and the other for him 😉
    Thanks for the delicious recipe!

  8. What a nice comment that was, Catie! I’m glad you and your family have enjoyed the strawberry shortcake so much. Thanks for visiting my website!
