Whole Wheat Strawberry Shortcakes Recipe

Nothing says spring better than a fresh strawberry shortcake. Heaven. My mother and I usually make this with strawberries we picked ourselves. —Sarah Hatter, Brodhead, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:6 servings


  • 2-1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled, divided
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Whipped cream


  • 1. In a bowl, thoroughly mash 3/4 cup strawberries; stir in syrup. Cut remaining strawberries into 1/4-in. slices; add to crushed strawberries and toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.
  • 2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk and honey until blended; stir into flour mixture just until moistened.
  • 3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Pat or roll dough to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes or until light brown. Remove to wire racks to cool slightly.
  • 4. To serve, split shortcakes in half. Fill with strawberry mixture and whipped cream. Top with additional whipped cream. Yield: 6 servings.

"I used this recipe for my 7th grade Home and Careers Biscuit lab. The kids moaned a little about using whole wheat flour, but after they were done baking, they couldn't get enough of them! They were simple and easy to make, very tender. I had them use frozen strawberries heated in a sauce pan with a little bit of sugar. They also really enjoyed that with homemade whipped cream! I will try these at home as well."
