This easy strawberry shortcake recipe is a vintage classic that we just keep coming back to. Made from scratch, this shortcake is light and fluffy, yet still simple enough for anyone to make. All you have to do is combine the ingredients and then drop the cakes on a baking sheet and let them cook. How easy is that? Grandma knew how to make a dessert that tastes amazing, but isn't too much work. Now you too can make this easy strawberry shortcake recipe from scratch, all without breaking a sweat. Once the cakes are finished cooking, just top with cream and strawberries, and you're all set! Dig in! 

From the Chef: "The refrigerator era of cooking offered the opportunity for home cooks to make recipes that they'd normally only get at restaurants, like strawberry shortcake. Dairy products were more readily used now that they could be properly stored."
- Addie Gundry

For a "from scratch" recipe this Easy Strawberry Shortcake recipe is truly just that...easy. I love that it makes individual servings, perfect for setting out on a dessert table, or as a special treat on game day. I have made these with blueberries (my little nieces favorite), raspberries and black berries. Let your imagination run wild with this recipe. Once you have the biscuit as a vessel, the rest is up to you.

This strawberry shortcake was so good! It was light and crunchy. I'm glad to know it's so easy to make.

Addie is just too cute! I watched her make this on Facebook and then had to come back and get the recipe to try it out for myself.
