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.
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 /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!!
