Strawberry Shortcake (cheater) Recipe {Thoughtful Thursday}

Thoughtful Thursday is {usually} a weekly post where I like to share recipes, crafts, DIY projects, or other helpful/thoughtful things I love! Welcome to the 1st 2014 Thoughtful Thursday!!!

Thoughtful Thursdays on as Jules is going

I know you're not surprised but I tend to 1/2 read recipes and end up 'messing up' the recipe. Sometimes it turns out yummy though & my way is usually easier {because I'm lazy}.
Tonight I'm sharing MY recipe for Strawberry Shortcakes that are EeeeeZeeee!
The original recipe {I messed up} was from Betty Crocker's BIG RED Cookbook- classic!

HERE is the online version which is not the same as the tangible cookbook.

easy homemade Strawberry Shortcake

Baking Ingredients

  • 1/2 Sugar
  • 1/3 cup margarine
  • 2 cups all-purpose Flour
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Milk

Baking Directions

  1. Preheat oven 450'.
  2. In a mixer, combine sugar & margarine until creamy.
  3. Slowly add 1/2 the flour, then the baking powder and salt, and then the rest of the flour.
  4. When that's all mixed up, add the milk and mix until it's a thick pancake batter consistency.
  5. Spray a cookie sheet with no-stick spray and then begin plopping globs of the batter on the pan. {I used a large spoon ~2tbs}
    You can get about 8-11 on a large cookie sheet without them running into one another & baking together.
  6. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown {around the edges. if the top is browning, the bottom is likely black}

 

Serving Ingredients {per serving}

  • 1-2 shortcakes
  • 1/4 cool whip
  • strawberry syrup

Serving Directions

  1. I like to either divide a single shortcake or use 2 to make a sandwich
  2. Put the dollop of cool whip inside
  3. Then drizzle with the strawberry syrup.
  4. If you like real strawberries, throw some of those on there, too.
