What you’ll need
- Strawberries – Fresh strawberries are ideal- cut them in half or quarters and sprinkle with sugar in a bowl. Adjust the sugar based on how sweet or tart your strawberries are.
- Sugar – Will naturally create juices from the fruit.
- Biscuits – Easy to make drop biscuits made with simple ingredients. Tastes delicious and absorbs the juices of the strawberries nicely.
- Whipped cream – We make our own with heavy whipping cream and sugar, but you can also use store-bought whipped cream or Redi-whip.
For the filling, mix the strawberry slices with granulated sugar in a medium bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed. This will help draw out the natural juices in the strawberries. I know you’re gonna love Strawberry Shortcake Recipe as much as we do!
How to make Strawberry Shortcake
Step 1: In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, melted butter and buttermilk until a soft dough forms. Drop by the spoonful onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Strawberry shortcake can be prepped ahead of time. Fix the berries and refrigerate them overnight. Strawberry shortcake biscuits can easily be made in one bowl and take only 12-minutes to bake.
