Summer Strawberry Recipes

Strawberries are one of the most popular summer delicacies. Here are a few recipes to help make the most of this delicious berry.

Strawberry Popovers


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups flour (sifted twice)
  • dash salt


Beat the eggs light. Add the milk and beat again. Add the flour and salt, and beat mixture until smooth. Pour into greased gem pans. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until done through and nicely browned.

To serve, split one side of each popover, fill with slightly crushed strawberries, and cover with whipped cream. Note: Allow gem pans to warm in oven while preparing the popovers.

Strawberry Whip Souffle


  • 1 quart strawberries
  • Powdered sugar
  • Whites of 3 eggs


Rub the strawberries through a fine strainer. Add powdered sugar to taste. Beat the egg whites very stiff and mix immediately with the strawberry mixture. Bake at 375 to 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve at once. Best if baked in a shallow baking dish.

Strawberry Fritters


  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 pint strawberries (cut in halves)


Make fritter batter by mixing flour, eggs, a dash of salt, sugar, butter, and milk. Stir in strawberries. Drop by spoonfuls into boiling shortening or oil of your choice. Fry till nicely browned. Drain on paper towels. Before serving, dust with powdered sugar and serve hot. Garnish with more strawberries, if desired.

Strawberry Sauce


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 cups strawberry pulp
Combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Cool slightly, then add strawberry pulp. Chill completely and serve over cake or other desserts.
