Classic Strawberry Shortcake
I was visiting my mom end summer, together with overheard her together with my aunt talking nearly making strawberry shortcake using “dad’s” recipe. They were patently talking nearly my grandfather, which was surprising, since I had no sentiment he baked.
What he had done was taken the strawberry shortcake recipe off the box of a certain, real pop premade biscuit mix, together with added extra “everything,” every bit my woman nurture seat it. So, that’s what I did here, except instead of using the materials inward the xanthous box, I used self-rising flour, which I’m pretty for certain is basically the same thing.
- 2 cups self ascent flour ((You tin dismiss brand y’all ain past times sifting together two cups of all-purpose flour alongside 1 tablespoon baking powder, together with 1 teaspoon fine salt)
- 1/4 loving cup sugar
- 1/4 loving cup heavy cream
- 1/2 loving cup milk
- 4 tbsp butter, melted, together with lightly toasted to a golden-brown
- 4 pints fresh strawberries
- 1/2 loving cup white sugar
- *add 1 tbsp water, if strawberries aren’t perfectly ripe
- 3/4 loving cup mutual frigidness heavy cream, whipped alongside a tablespoon of saccharide together with a few drops of vanilla (watch exhibit here)
