A little FYI for you guys... I really don't like eating fresh fruits. I am a bit fussy when it comes to eating fruits. For some reason I hate the texture of them (except bananas). So for me to get my fruit fix, I have to juice them or make them into shakes or incorporate them in a dessert.
My H recently bought some strawberries, and they looked so scrumptious! Usually, I would have just dipped them in sugar then I would be fine eating them. But my baking bug told me to make a dessert out of them instead. So what's a good strawberry dessert? think think think... Strawberry shortcake! Yes, I've decided to make strawberry shortcake.
A lot of strawberry shortcakes nowadays uses angel food cake instead of shortcake to sandwich the strawberries and whipped cream. Since I'm not so much a fan of angel food cake, I made the shortcake version.
Shortcakes looks almost like scones but texture wise more like a biscuits. Traditionally, shortcakes are filled with whipped cream and strawberries. But now it can be filled with any cream fillings and fruits; shortcakes can also be used as base for cheesecakes.
Shortcakes are so easy to whip up; it doesn't take much time to make one. So for my quick fix dessert to incorporate those luscious strawberries -- definitely two thumbs up! :)
Components used for this dessert treat:
- Whipped Cream
- Fresh Strawberries
