This easy strawberry shortcake recipe starts with homemade buttermilk biscuits that are topped with fresh, macerated strawberries, and homemade whipped cream. A summer staple!
Are you consuming tons of fruit this summer? Joseph and I are loving big bowls of fruit salad, and both boys adore strawberries and blueberries. The strawberries have started looking absolutely phenomenal, so I decided it was high time that we had some proper strawberry shortcakes.
One of the easiest summer desserts you can make, strawberry shortcake is comprised of only three components: biscuits, strawberries, and whipped cream. They are so easy to make, but if you take shortcuts you’re only robbing yourself of one of summer’s finest sweet treats. These beg to be done the 100% homemade route, so let’s discuss!
(Also, quick aside: did anyone else that grew up in the 80’s LOVE Strawberry Shortcake, the character? I was infatuated with her, and that’s the first thing I think of anytime I hear “strawberry shortcake”!)
