The Best Strawberry Shortcake Recipe You’ll Ever Taste

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry shortcake is one of our favorite desserts when the warmer weather finally arrives. It’s ideal for feeding a crowd but it’s so easy to make that I often whip it up just for the family as a treat. And while individual strawberry shortcakes are gorgeous and perfect for lawn parties (not the crowd I run with), when it comes to my family and friends, a big ol’ dessert on a cake stand wins every time.

Strawberry Shortcake

The classic strawberry shortcake is impressive looking, isn’t it? And making this dessert is easier than you think. I simply bake two beautiful lemony cornmeal cakes and let them cool. Then, I layer the cake with sliced strawberries, fresh vanilla whipped cream, and a dusting of powdered sugar. I pack the layers together tightly to ensure the cake won’t fall (and even if it did, we’d still devour it), and to make sure every single slice is full of flavor. The strawberries are usually so juicy that a little bit of strawberry syrup will soak into the cake layers and make it all the more delish. The best part is that it isn’t meant to be a picture-perfect dessert with all the strawberries lined up just so. It’s more of a happy mash-up of spring flavor and colors.

There are no fancy decorating skills required for this easy strawberry shortcake recipe. Follow my directions below and watch the magic unfold!
