My mom used to make this all the time using Bisquick baking mix for a fast, simple dessert.

Ingredients

CAKES

2 1/3 c
bisquick or similar baking mix
2/3 c
vanilla almond milk
2 Tbsp
white sugar
3 Tbsp
melted butter/margarine

STRAWBERRIES IN SYRUP

1 qt
strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
1/4 - 1/2 c
sugar (optional if you don't want the extra sugar or syrupy strawberries)

WHIPPED CREAM

1/2 pt
heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp
almond extract (vanilla works well too)
1 Tbsp
white sugar

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix cake ingredients together and prepare like drop biscuits. Bake 12-14 minutes until golden brown.

Remove from oven and set on wire racks to cool.
2Prepare strawberries and stir sugar over them well. Cover and set in fridge until ready to serve, at least 30 minutes.
3When you are close to ready to serve, make the whipped topping. Whip the cream and sugar together until it starts to form peaks. Add the almond/vanilla extract and continue whipping until desired consistency.
4Split the shortcakes in half and fill with strawberries. Top with a dollop (or more) of whipped cream and you can even drizzle some of the strawberry syrup over for a little extra sweetness and nice presentation.
