This strawberry shortcake recipe is as easy and yummy as it can be. I was busy making another cake for a friend during the day and I was looking for a fast and easy recipe to bring for supper with my in-laws that night. I wanted to make something with strawberries since they were abundant and were on sale.
I've always wanted to try a strawberry shortcake recipe done the old fashioned way. I've always thought that strawberry shortcakes were made with layers of vanilla sponge cake with cream and strawberries.
The old fashioned way is made with a shortcake, biscuit or scone. A shortcake is crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. It has a buttery taste and not really that sweet.
I found the recipe on Recipezaar and I chose that recipe because I have all the ingredients in it and it seems fast to make. The only changes I made was I used half the amount of strawberries it called for and I used a different pan size. It is best to make and assemble the day you are serving it. It is a perfect cake to bring when invited for supper.
