Strawbery Glaze

How to save a sunken cake...

This will turn an ordinary failed sunken cake into a divine dessert! Sometimes the best laid plans and all that... cakes collapse and you're left with something which know tastes pretty good but doesn't look at that great. Here's rescue remedy; fill the hole with this easy to make glaze.

Of course, you could just make the glaze for an ordinary cake too!
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and halved, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier (or other orange-flavored liqueur) optional
Mash 1 cup of the strawberries. Combine mashed and unmashed strawberries, sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in Grand Marnier. Cover and chill. Makes about 1-1/2 cups.
