I am a HUGE fan of Gluten Free Bisquick…would you know that it makes GREAT Strawberry Shortcake?! “Glutenous maximus” friends- no worries, you can use regular Bisquick {haha}. A very easy, delicious, “kinda homemade” Summer dessert. Add a dollop of homemade whipped cream for the finishing touch.

I literally “bought out” my local grocery store of this product. LOVE it! {For those who do not have food allergies- regular Bisquick is just fine, make sure to follow package instructions-they differ!}

Cut and rinse strawberries

Add water and sugar. Cover and place in refrigerator. Juice from the strawberries will mix with the water and sugar and make for a delicious syrup for shortcake.

In a medium bowl combine Bisquick mix and 1/4 cup sugar, cut in butter with 2 knives.

Stir in milk, eggs and vanilla {use any milk you wish}.

Drop batter by the spoonfuls on a foil lined pan – brush with melted butter. Bake in a 425 oven for 10-12 mins.

While shortcake is baking make your whipped cream.

{Or have your children make the whipped cream, hehe}

Mmmmm….so easy, so worth it.

Shortcakes are done!

Does anyone else appreciate this “golden” color? Ohhh, I just love it.

Place one shortcake on the bottom, top with strawberries, place a shortcake on top and garnish with homemade whipping cream. Beautiful! Enjoy Ladies!!!!

{Gluten-Free never tasted so…..good!}

  1. Ohmygosh….that looks SOOO good! WHY did I have to see this tonight? I have Bisquick, but no strawberries…I bet blueberries would work. I’m headed to the kitchen… 🙂

  2. This is exactly what my mom would make for us as kids! Using the regular Bisquick though..I don’t think they had the other stuff back then, lol! I think I’ll have to for my kiddos sometime soon, thanks for this reminder!

  3. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and
    it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest you some interesting things or advice. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read more things about it!
