I am looking for a quick strawberry filling where i can use the strawberry jam as the basic ingredient and then add something to improve the texture and change the taste a little bit. Can't think of that 'something' In the end i will add real strawberries ,but can please some one tell me how to enhance the taste and texture of jam?
Thanks a in advance!
A suggestion I have is to make BC and then add the filling to it. It does well in the cakes, I just make sure I have the seedless kind.
I'm not sure what kind of BC you make, but I make the American version...butter, PS, vanilla and some put shortening...Then I add the strawberry jam to it. It's good, I call it my Strawberry Ice Cream filling...
Some people mix some of their buttercream or IMBC/SMBC with jam.
Just be careful adding fresh berries they will release a lot of water making your filling very runny.
You can "cook" the berries on the stovetop, add the jam and maybe a little liquor with some cornstarch to thicken it.
Thanks a lot I will add the buttercream. I also make american buttercream, and then i will add few berried cut in small pieces. That should be okay,right?
What you can do is cut up the berries and place them on a paper towel for a while to absorb some of their liquid......strawberries are notorious for leaking and you don't want that leakage in your filling.
I'll do that, thanks
If you are going to use fresh berries you may want to sprinkle with a little lemon juice to keep their color fresh looking. Berries have a tendency to have the color fade and look gross.
Thats a great tip! thanks!!
