Easy Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Photo Easy Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

This is the quick version of the recipe, using store-bought cake — or biscuits for a more traditional take.


1 pint fresh strawberries, stemmed and sliced
1/3 cup sugar 
Juice of one small lemon 
4 shortcakes, biscuits, or pound cake 
1/2 cup lemon curd 
1 cup whipping cream
2-4 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Sprigs of fresh mint


Step 1: To make whipped cream: combine the cream, two tbsp sugar and the vanilla in a chilled bowl. Whip until soft peaks form. Sweeten with remaning sugar if desired. 

Step 2: In a small bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice. Using the back of a fork, lightly mash half of the strawberries. 

Step 3: Split the shortcakes and place in individual dessert bowls. Spread each half with 1-2 tbsp of lemon curd. Spoon half of the fruit mixture over shorcakes. Top with the remaining shortcake halves. Garnish with the whipped cream and mint.
