I love this combo, but I use Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar which you can get from Basiks at Home. You can email them at: [email protected] to order. I also use vanilla ice cream instead of whipped creme, the temperature contrast btwn the hot cake, room temp strawberries and ice cream is wonderful.I also serve it in a martini glass for a small dinner party~
One of the best and simplest desserts I have ever made. Grilled angel food cake for about 2 minutes (1 min each side). Used an aged Italian balsamic. The basil was perfect with the strawberries.
