How To Make Bisquick Strawberry Shortcake
Step 1. Prep The Strawberries
Stir the strawberries and 1/4 cup granulated sugar together in a large bowl. Cover the bowl and set in the refrigerator until ready to use. This time allows the strawberries to release their delicious juices!
Step 2. Make The Shortcake
In a medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar and the butter until soft dough forms. On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 6 spoonfuls. Top each dough ball with a sprinkle of sugar!
Step 3. Bake
Bake in the oven 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow your shortcake to cool on a wire rack.
Step 4. Assemble & Enjoy!
Split your warm warm shortcakes; fill and top with strawberries and whipped cream!
What is shortcake made of?
Shortcake has many similar ingredients to cake. However, the main difference is, shortcake’s butter is cut into its dry ingredients and has a texture that is similar to cornmeal.
Why is it called shortcake?
While shortcake is smaller than a traditional cake, its name actually comes from an old English term. “Short” was used to describe something made crumbly by adding fat to the recipe. In this case, butter!
Do you refrigerate strawberry shortcake?
The shortcake will absorb the strawberries and whipped topping after a time and become soggy. If you’d like to save it for later, I would recommend refrigerating the strawberries and shortcake separately!
