Strawberry Shortcake-Title

Sometimes the classics are the best. There will always be something new and different out there, but classics are always great! It’s finally strawberry season here in Northern Michigan which means one thing and one thing only: It’s time for STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE!!!!

Strawberry Shortcake

I heard of a new strawberry patch near my home so I had to check it out. When I got to the berry patch it was full of people picking berries. Fortunately, the patch offers pre-picked berries for only 25 cents more a pound. Personally, I pay the extra 25 cents per pound to save myself the hassle of picking fruit.

I purchared 14 pounds of berries which MIGHT be enough to get us through December. Of course, some of those were made into a big ole bowl of strawberry shortcake. I have a feeling I’m going to have to go back and buy another 15 pounds or so to make sure we make it through to the next strawberry season.

The next batch of berries I buy will probably be made into jam and a few more delicious desserts. I may try my hand at some strawberry ice cream or a triple berry coffee cake. Although, strawberry crepes are calling my name. Have I mentioned that strawberries are one of my favorite fruits? June in Michigan is one of my favorite times of year :)

What is your favorite strawberry dessert?

    Oh yum! That looks delicious and just like my grandmother used to make. I love strawberry shortcake but have always gone the ‘easy’ route and bought angel food cake for the base at home. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

    Picking berries is fun and a great way to get fresh produce at a great price. Glad you were able to check the new strawberry patch out. This looks delicious!

    Growing up in the south I had only had the strawberry shortcake with the spongy cake. I recently tried this scone type cake and it is soooooo much better!!!
