Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

This Strawberry Shortcake is the perfect spring dessert. It has a light and flaky biscuit, fresh juicy strawberries and lemony homemade whipped cream.

Ingredients • fresh strawberries • sugar • all-purpose flour • sugar • baking powder • baking soda • salt • heavy cream • vanilla extract • lemon zest

Step 1 In a medium bowl, mix the sliced strawberries with 3 tablespoons of sugar. Refrigerate until ready to assemble the strawberry shortcakes.

Step 2 Preheat the oven to 400°F. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a spoon or silicone spatula, mix in heavy cream until just combined.

Step 3 Place mixture in an ungreased 8X8 inch pan. Bake until golden, about 18-20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from the pan and placing on a wire rack to cool.

Step 4 Add the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon zest to a large bowl. Using a mixer, beat starting on low speed and moving up to high speed for about 2 minutes or until soft peaks form.

Step 5 Cut the shortcake biscuit into 6 pieces, then slice each piece in half, horizontally. Assemble the strawberry shortcakes.

Step 6 Serve immediately and enjoy!
