We have been eating a lot of berries the last couple weeks. They strawberries have been especially tasty lately. I bought a big flat the other day and knew I was going to have to make something to use some of them up.
I decided Strawberry Shortcake would be the perfect treat. I decided to cheat a little and use a cake mix. If you want to make your own cake, good for you! I also used whipped cream from a can, cause that is how I roll!
Despite my cheats it tasted delicious!
What you need,
1 Yellow Cake (I used a French Vanilla boxed cake and made it according to the directions on the box)
3 cups strawberries, sliced
1 tbsp. sugar
In a bowl stir the strawberries with the sugar and let them sit at least an hour before making the shortcakes.
When you are ready cut yourself a nice sized piece of cake and slice it in half, horizontally.
Add a layer of sliced berries onto the bottom layer of cake, top with whipped cream, add the top layer of cake, add more berries and more whipped cream until you have a tower of awesomeness!
Stuff in your face!
There you have it, super simple, super tasty! This would be a great dessert for a crowd. Or just for you and your sweetie! We ate strawberry shortcake 4 nights in a row and it was delightful!
