Here Comes the Sun: Better than the Best Ever Strawberry Shortcake

When I’m in the mood for strawberry shortcake, I usually head to the store and pick up those little circular sponge cake things. But after picking some delicious fresh strawberries at a local nursery, I knew that store bought cake was just not gonna cut it.

So I made homemade strawberry shortcake for the first time ever. And after tasting it, I will never buy it from the store again. EVER.

If you want your strawberry shortcake recipe to be better than the best ever, read on! This is also the easiest recipe ever which is good for all of you out there who are like me and can use some help in the baking department!

3 pints Fresh strawberries
2 1/4 cups all purpose Flour
3/4 cup white sugar 
2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 cup Butter (or shortening)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 Egg, beaten
2/3 cup Milk
Cool Whip

Recipe (adapted from

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease and flour one 8″ cake pan.

Slice the strawberries and toss them in 1/2 cup sugar
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, 1/4 cup sugar and salt

Cut in the butter (or shortening) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs

Make a well in the center and add a beaten egg and milk. Stir until just combined.

Pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool.

Top the cake with Cool Whip and strawberries

This cake is more like a biscuit consistency. At first I was skeptical but it is oh so yummy. Because it more biscuit than cake, it does not get soggy from the strawberries and cream. Yummy goodness in every bite.


Have you picked any fresh strawberries yet this year?  It’s one of my favorite things to do in the Spring.

  1. I would like to print a one-page recipe for this! I don’t want to print everything and cut and paste to add to my recipe book. Why is this hard? If I can print from your page, it’s hard to find–it should be where all the websites are, or a box that says Print. I didn’t see one. Did I miss it?

    1. Hi Carrie! This post was written long before I had the option to make the actual recipe printable in a neat little box. I would suggest copying the recipe onto a recipe card.
