Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Publisher Photo
In our farmhouse kitchen, I grew up helping my mom make soup and pies. My husband's a doctor, and we live on a "hobby farm" here in the Skagit Valley. Through the years, we've raised everything from turkeys to horses. Right now, there are steers in the pasture. Larry and I have four children. The eldest was married last summer...the youngest is finishing kindergarten!

Best shortcake every!! I sprinkle a little sugar over the warm cake when it comes out of the oven!

Great recipe and so easy to make. Goes perfect with our Oregon Hood Strawberries. Will be making this often.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 5, 2014

Loved the recipe, but I agree with other people who said they prefer a strawberry glaze rather than just strawberries on top. I think it would have been worth 5 stars had I not had to use another recipe from elsewhere.

This was delicious. It has just the right amount of sweetness. It was quick and easy to make with everyday ingredients.
