Drizzle the ganache over the bundt cake, pouring over the top and letting it pool slowly down the sides. Arrange the strawberries on top, and let the ganache set.
Make sure to find the most attractive, fresh, firm strawberries to use for dipping and decorating.
Use the best quality white chocolate that you can afford for this recipe, the chocolate really is a focal point in this cake. If you can find white chocolate made specifically for melting, that’s probably an easier way to go.
Remember, this cake can be made in "sections". I baked the cake one day, let it cool completely and wrapped tightly in plastic and kept it at room temperature until putting it all together. The next day, I dipped the strawberries, made the white Chocolate Ganache and assembled shortly before serving. It was well received.
If you aren’t sure whether your ganache is at the perfect consistency for drizzling on the cake, you can test it by pouring a little bit on and seeing how it flows down the side. If it's too liquid, you can chill the ganache in the fridge for about 5 minutes. If you end up getting it a little too thick, microwave it for 5-10 seconds, just until it’s reached the right consistency. It should drip down the sides of the cake easily, but not too fast.
Decorate with your beautiful dipped strawberries and fight over who gets the biggest piece. ??
The garden strawberry (or simply strawberry; Fragaria × ananassa) is a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria, collectively known as the strawberry. It is cultivated worldwide for its fruit. The fruit is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in such prepared foods as preserves, juice, pies, ice creams, milkshakes, and chocolates. Artificial strawberry flavorings and aromas are also widely used in many products like lip gloss, candy, hand sanitizers, perfume, and many others.
The garden strawberry was first bred in Brittany, France, in the 1750s via a cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America and Fragaria chiloensis, which was brought from Chile by Amédée-François Frézier in 1714.Cultivars of Fragaria × ananassa have replaced, in commercial production, the woodland strawberry (Fragaria vesca), which was the first strawberry species cultivated in the early 17th century.
The strawberry is not, from a botanical point of view, a berry. Technically, it is an aggregate accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant's ovaries but from the receptacle that holds the ovaries. Each apparent "seed" (achene) on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the flower, with a seed inside it.
Fresh summer strawberries are one of the most popular, refreshing, and healthy treats on the planet. They also appear to carry a number of health benefits.
Today, there are over 600 varieties of strawberries. The sweet, slightly tart berries rank among the top 10 fruits and vegetables for antioxidant content.
The benefits of consuming fruits and vegetables of all kinds, including strawberries, are varied. As plant food consumption goes up, the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer goes down.
A high intake of fruits and vegetables is also associated with healthy skin and hair, increased energy, and lower weight. Increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables significantly decreases the risk of obesity and overall mortality.
