Summer...it means fun, family and food! We have lots of fun, see lots of family and ohhh the food. Summer equals so many fresh yummy things, especially fresh fruit and strawberries are the absolute best!!
My brother and his daughters Lauren and Stephanie came for a visit this weekend and we had to have shortcake...
My daughters Courtney and Kelsie love strawberry shortcake, but it has to be sweet and juicy!! See all the liquid on the bottom...delish!!
My strawberry shortcake recipe is super easy.
Just slice fresh strawberries...
I add water just to cover.
Now add sugar to taste...about 1/2 cup depending on how many strawberries. Let this soak for a few hours or more to let the water turn into strawberry juice!!
My family likes a lot of juice on their shortcake, so adding the water creates a yummy strawberry liquid.
Now the family favorite for the shortcake. My mom always used Bisquick and so do I. It really has the best flavor and texture for the cake part.
The recipe is right on the back. (The first 2 ingredients are for the strawberry preparation)
I doubled the recipe to make 12.
Yummy and golden brown.
I know what you're thinking...well, maybe I don't (lol), but yes, I ate the whole thing and then some!!
It's summer, so I'll walk it off. Actually, I spent 4 hours walking through Ikea yesterday, so that strawberry shortcake is no longer on my hips!! The plate of meatballs, mashed potatoes and Lingonberry sauce is there now.
Have a great day,
