Super Simple Strawberry Shortcake
Individual Sponge Cakes – store bought works great (we chose chocolate!)
Fresh Strawberries halved or quartered
Whip Cream – make your own (I like to add 1Tablespoon of white granulated sugar, and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract to the whipping cream), or save yourself some time and pick-up your favorite pre-made whip cream.
That’s all you need! This recipe won’t break the bank either ;-)
Generously top sponge cake with chopped strawberries.
Add a large dollop of whip cream.
It really doesn’t get any easier than that! A popular thing to do for this dessert is to toss the strawberries in a little bit of sugar. That will get their juices flowing. I find the strawberries are so ripe and tasty right now, I save myself that little bit of sugar and just serve them plain. Make Dad this special treat and it is sure to make him feel special, even though it only takes minutes to do!
Happy Father’s Day Dad! This dessert will forever remind me of you. J
Big Brother was all too happy to test out this dessert! Hey, we needed a picture to go with the recipe, right?! ;-) We tried it out last Sunday and while I put it together he covered his eyes the whole time, and specially requested I tell him “Happy Dessert Sunday Surprise!”
I love to see the world through his eyes! ♥
Have a good one, everyone! J
