How to Make Simple Strawberry Shortcake


  1. Preheat 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.
  2. Prepare strawberries and stir sugar over them well. Cover and set in fridge until ready to serve, at least 30 minutes.
  3. When 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.
  4. Split 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.
