Strawberry Shortcake “From Scratch”.


Strawberry Filling


Remove leaves from strawberries and quarter (or cut smaller depending on the size of your berries) and put into bowl. Sprinkle a light dusting of sugar over the top and place in fridge until ready to assemble cakes.

Made like a drop biscuit. I only wanted 2 cakes so I scaled down (and sweetened) this recipe.

2c Flour
1tbsp sugar
2tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3c butter, cold & cut into chunks
7/8c milk

Mix all dry ingredients together, then add butter and ‘pinch’ with hands ( I don’t have a pastry cutter) until well combined. Add in milk until you reach a doughy consistency. I scooped spoonfuls onto parchment paper on a baking sheet and baked around 10 minutes in a preheated 450F oven.

Whipped Cream

Heavy Whipping Cream
Confectioners Sugar

Put however much whipping cream you’d like into a bowl and sprinkle a bit of sugar. Mix with hand mixer until it turns into whipped cream. If you mix too long it will start to turn into butter. Don’t panic, just add a little more heavy whipping cream and it will fix itself.

Assemble cakes and enjoy the deliciousness!
