Balsamic Marinated Strawberries

I think of these Mini Gluten-Free Maple Almond Cakes as a grown-up version of the strawberry shortcakes I grew up loving. And because the strawberries are best when marinated for several hours, this is the perfect prep-today eat-tomorrow dessert. The marinated strawberries are super simple to prepare and can be used atop your favorite cake, layered into Greek yogurt for a snack and even work well at breakfast (think pancake or waffle topping!). You can adjust the balsamic according to the amount of “tang” you prefer.


Balsamic Marinated Strawberries


  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced


  • Whisk together balsamic vinegar, vanilla & maple syrup & pour over sliced strawberries.
  • Place in container and store in refrigerator.
  • Let marinate in refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes up to 3-4 days.
