The LONG Awaited Strawberry Shortcake

Hubby and I have been trying to grow strawberries for several years….no luck.  We kept trying and I am glad we did!!  Tonight for supper we enjoyed Strawberry Shortcake made with our strawberries.


It was heavenly!  I thought I took a HUGE helping but hubby took about double of my serving.

I make a really simple Old Fashion Strawberry Shortcake…here’s the recipe:

For the strawberry portion, smash strawberries and sprinkle with sugar to taste.  Refrigerate.

For the shortcake part:

3 T sugar
one heaping T of melted butter
2/3 c milk
1 egg
1 /13c flour
1 heaping T baking powder

Mix it up and place in a grease pie tin or round cake pan.   It will seem like there isn’t enough dough but there is.  It will rise nicely.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes.  You don’t want it to be brown on top.

From there, I cut it in wedges like a pie.  I cut it in half to make two layers.   Put a scoop of strawberries on the bottom layer.  Put the shortcake on top.  Put a scoop of ice cream on top of that.  Then strawberries…then whip cream.  YUM!!

This shortcake isn’t like shortcake you purchase in town..this is good yet has a old fashion flare.  Last night we had homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Pie…that was yummy too.  Oh, I love strawberries!!

    We haven’t had much luck with strawberries either. Have had just a handful in previous years, but they never made it out of the garden because we couldn’t resist popping them into our mouths immediately.Maybe this’ll be our year! Have a serving for me please!

    We cannot grow strawberries because of all the deer we have – they will not leave them alone, so we gave up! Your strawberries look yummy!! Thanks for sharing!!!

    Oh, now I want some, but strawberries aren’t ripe here yet and I refuse to buy the ones from far far away. They don’t have the same flavour of the ones just picked. Two more weeks….and counting
