Let them eat cake!

Joining the Pinterest Party hosted by Mindee over at Our Front Door today. I'm sharing a simple and delicious recipe I've made hundreds of times and while I know that's not exactly playing by the rules wouldn't you rather me post a recipe I know is tasty as opposed to one that is just a maybe?

I thought so.

Actually this recipe pops up on Pinterest quite often but I'm pretty certain the credit should go to Bisquick.


Strawberry Shortcake

If you don't have a shortcake recipe you already love then I recommend you give this one a try. It's super easy, delicious, and I think, foolproof.


The recipe says to sprinkle your berries with a little sugar. I like to cut mine up several hours ahead of serving so they have plenty of juice. Don't skip the sugar because you want the juice it creates.


These shortcake biscuits are rustic and not overly sweet.


Slice them in half and put a layer of berries in the middle. Pop the top back on and then add more berries, and of course a big dollop of real whipped cream. Yes, it must be real whipped cream. I loathe artificial whipped toppings.


I made this for Memorial Day and tossed a few blueberries on the side too.
Happy Summer!

  6. You're right, it is a Bisquick recipe. I know this because I make it sometimes and the recipe is in my Bisquick cookbook. :) The good news for us- Bisquick comes in gluten free form now! WooHoo!

  7. I even have Bisquick on hand and I like shortcake that is biscuity rather than cakey so this looks perfect. Thanks Joyce. Oh, and I added the link to this in the body of my post because my Linky subscription had expired and I didn't want to fork over the fee for just one more post. :)

  10. You must've been reading my mind. I started thinking after the HP that I've never actually made shortcake. Thanks for posting, and yes, I much prefer a "foolproof" recipe as oppposed to a maybe! Although, with me, baking is never foolproof and always a maybe.

  18. Bisquick shortcake is the BEST, and what my mother made too years ago....but try it just like you said, but in a bowl with some milk on it. That way is even better!
