So Simple Strawberry Shortcake

The other day, after going on about fresh local veggies and produce, I mentioned that I was going to try out a very simple shortcake recipe.  Let me tell you, it was so easy.  And, it was devoured within minutes...maybe seconds.  The best thing about it, was that it took me about 10 minutes total to get it in the oven, and about 10 min. to bake. So, even though I hadn't planned on having Strawberry Shortcake until I was posting about it right before dinner, it still happened, and was a very delicious ending to our dinner.

Here ya go!  Super fast, and super yummy strawberry shortcake!

2 1/4 cups All Purpose Baking Mix

4 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 c. milk

strawberry mixture:
4 c. strawberries sliced
4-5 tbsp. sugar

1. Preheat oven to 450.

2. Stir together ingredients until well blended.

3. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

5. While shortcakes are baking, mix strawberries and sugar together. Chill until ready to serve shortcake.

6. Slice cakes in half and strawberries (or your fruit of choice) and top with whipped cream.


  1. Perfect timing! I'll be making these for tonight! Thanks so much for a quick recipe!

    1. Oh good! Glad you could use it!

    2. They were delicious! I made a double batch early last week and I'm making a double batch again today! Thanks again!

  2. Oh that does look super easy and yummy!
    Strawberry shortcake is my most favorite food. I could eat it for every. single. meal. And yes, my husband has even been party to my craziness!
    Usually though we throw the who batch of dough into Grandma Bonnie's Pie Plate and bake the whole thing at once. It takes just a bit longer...but there's no fussing. We just cut it like you'd cut a pie and serve it up in wedges.
    Regardless how it's served...I'm so happy it's strawberry season!

    1. What a great idea, Diane! So easy!
