Mom’s Strawberry Shortcake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
I was primarily looking for a simple shortcake recipe to serve with (thawed) sweetened frozen strawberries. In the past, I’ve used store-bought shortcakes or made my own drop biscuits using Bisquick. Can I just tell you that this shortcake recipe is better than all of them, and my husband LOVED it (so did I). Light, flavorful, and so easy to make.
I realize I was at a high altitude and so it took longer to cook but it came our very mushy. I kept cooking it a little longer because it was as though was just not done. I was very disappointed.
I was looking for a simple strawberry shortcake recipe, one where you don't have to separate the egg whites and all that, so thanks for this! I really love it! It's even easy to double the recipe. I didn't change anything in the recipe but just added a teaspoon or two of strawberry flavor to the batter. Even coming straight out of the fridge, it's not that dense or dry. Perfect sweetness.
I doubled this recipe and instead of sugar I used an organic stevia blend and came out amazing
Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe! I used for a family reunion and everyone loved it! It is now officially the only cake recipe I will use. I also reduced the sugar to 1/2c. Even after doing that, the taste was still fantastic! I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the fresh strawberries. Tasted great.
Simple yet delicious. I love the sweetness of this cake
Easy to make! This was EXACTLY what I was looking for!!! It reminded me of the wonderful shortcakes from my childhood!!! DELICIOUS ! I also had difficulty taking it out of the pan after 10 min - so left it in the pan and it was fine. Strawberry time again! I put parchment paper in the bottom! PERFECTION
Great shortcake. I mixed everything in the bowl together, mixing well. I also added an extra tablespoon of butter. I used buttermilk plus 1/2 tsp. baking soda and also cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, as I only wanted it slightly sweet. It came out great!
I have been making this recipe since it came out in 1996! 20 years ofthe best strawberry shortcake ever!
This is a great recipe for strawberry shortcake. I add frozen strawberries in syrup along with the fresh berries - delicious
