A guaranteed hit! We had to bring something homemade to a picnic... So, I chose a sophisticated chocolate cake! A little bit of strawberry coulis, some mint leaves and voila! The cake plate was empty when I left the picnic!
To make an easy strawberry coulis, simply chop a punnet of strawberries, mix with 2 tablespoons icing sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Microwave on medium-high heat, stirring regularly until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Blend to a puree in the blender.
