Easy Homemade Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

The Best Strawberry Shortcake

This is an easy homemade strawberry shortcake recipe that really delicious. Add whipped topping and strawberries to the top to make it a perfect summer treat.

 

I absolutely LOVE this homemade strawberry shortcake recipe because my mother used to make it for me when I was a kid. It is easy to make and tastes delicious! And it is so much better than purchasing the dessert cakes at the grocery store.

Sometimes my mother made her own whipped cream topping (see the recipe below), which tastes so good. But to make it easier, sometimes we purchased the store-bought whipped toppings. Of course, the store-bought whipping cream in the spray can would always end up being sprayed into kids’ mouths as much as it was added to the top of the strawberry shortcakes. Oh, the memories!

I now make this easy strawberry shortcake recipe for my kids and they devour it when it’s placed in front of them. That’s how good it is!

Here’s how to make my family’s easy strawberry shortcake recipe. All the measurements are in the printable recipe card at the end of the post.

  • Alternate adding the dry ingredients and milk to the creamed mixture until mixed.
  • Add in the vanilla and mix.

How to do you prepare fresh strawberries?

Right before you add the strawberries to the top of the strawberry shortcake, you’ll first wash them by placing them in a colander and gently rinsing under cold water. Place them on paper towels and dry them off. Then hull and slice the strawberries. The way to hull strawberries is by removing the green cap with a parking knife or a strawberry huller.

  1. I tried this cake.
    I have it 2 stars because it was easy for sure BUT I felt it tasted like pancakes and had too much baking soda. Not gross just not wonderful

  2. Thought this was a quick easy treat! My family loved it! 😊

  3. This is exactly the recipe I was looking for! It’s quick and simple. It has a nice dense texture that stands up to juicy strawberries and it’s sweet but not too sweet.
