This strawberry shortcake is one that my mother made each summer when the fresh strawberries started appearing in the supermarkets.
It is our family’s most favorite summer time dessert and is lovingly called “Grammy’s Shortcake” by all her grandchildren.
Fresh strawberries make such a great addition to desserts. They are fresh and naturally low in calories and very tasty. (See my recipe for strawberry oatmeal bars here for another tasty summer time treat.)
Today, we’ll be using fresh strawberries in a yummy strawberry shortcake.
Nostalgic Strawberry Shortcake Recipe.
The recipe could not be easier to make, but don’t let that fool you. It is rich, delicious and very flavorful. The sugar makes the berries make their own syrup.
You can whip your own topping from fresh cream or just use the prepackaged or aerosol cans. All are good. To make the shortcake, I use Bisquick Heart Smart Baking mix. (affiliate link)
You can make this dessert one of two ways. Either make individual biscuit sized shortcakes and slice them in half and layer, or do it “Grammy Style” and make a four layer delight that is great for gatherings.
Either way, the taste is delicious and the look is fabulous.
