Strawberry Shortcake Strawberry shortcake is a great dessert to enjoy during the summer months or just anytime.  This shortcake is delicious and easy to prepare.  Your family and guests will love it!

1 1/2 quarts fresh or frozen strawberries
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick butter or margarine, or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream
In a large mixing bowl whisk together, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Cut in butter until like coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla and stir with a spoon until all ingredients are wet. Spray a round 9 inch cake pan with cooking spray. (Could use a 9 x 9 inch square pan, too)  Pour batter into baking dish and bake in preheated 375 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes checking for doneness as ovens vary.  Let cool about 10 minutes. Remove from pan to a plate.  You could slice this in half and put the strawberries in the middle and on the top and add whipped cream to the entire dish or slice individual pieces in half and add strawberries and whipped cream. (I like to do the individual shortcakes because you can use several different fruits with the cake that way)  You can use this with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches or any fruit you have on hand.  Makes about 8 to 10 servings depending on how big you cut your cake slices. This cake tastes a lot like the individual shortcakes you buy in the store only better!   Enjoy!

  1. This cake reminds me of the “sweet bread” that my mom made from scratch.

  2. Yet another delicious-looking recipe. My grocery list is growing by the minute.

  3. The strawberries are just starting to get big and bright in our stores. Your cake looks divine! There is nothing like homemade goodness in the summertime!


  4. The berries are just popping up now in the garden but I did make a lovely strawberry trifle with Greek yogurt, lady fingers, whipped cream, and store bought fruit the other day. I will now save your cake for the fresh berries, what a lovely dessert that will be.

  5. You say 1 stick of butter! What is that in cups?

  6. What a beautiful dessert! …and looks delicious, too! Just perfect for summer :)

  7. Love this… childhood favorite and still a favorite. Looking good.

  8. I have been living on strawberries since they have been in the stores. Love them. Your cake sounds good.
