Maple-strawberry cream cake recipe

This Canada Day, gather your friends and family and host a patriotic feast packed with recipes and ingredients from across our great country. What’s more Canadian than a menu of Alberta-style steak, a maple syrup-infused cocktail and a flag-inspired (red and white) dessert? Happy Canada Day!


Grill up — from Calgary restaurant-scene hot-spot — Ox and Angela’s grilled flatiron steak with piquillo-pepper confit or for a more laid-back style, our new classic burger (with Canadian beef and cheddar cheese). For a lighter fare, our maple pan-seared pork medallions on watercress will fit the bill.

We’re loving Charcut’s buttery soft pretzel sticks — serve one alongside the steak. A maple leaf spinach-and-strawberry salad is a great side to go with a the burger or steak.


These strawberry-vanilla yogurt pops are the perfect patriotic treat to serve on Canada Day. Feel like baking? Our maple-strawberry cream cake or fresh basil and strawberry meringues are divine.

Greet each guest with a red-and-white Canada Day cocktail made with one of our favourite homegrown ingredients — maple syrup. For a kid-friendly drink, try our pretty pink rhubarb pop.
