Strawberry shortcake is one of my all time favorite desserts. Growing up my mom would buy packages of little yellow shortcakes. As an adult watching ingredients, I can’t bring myself to buy them. I’ve tried all different kinds of biscuit-type shortcakes, but nothing was quite the same as those little yellow cakes.
I had an “ah ha” moment a few weeks ago when I realized I could use CAKE for the short cake! I’m not sure what it took me years to figure that out. At first I thought I’d try yellow cake, but I decided to use a French vanilla cake instead. And then in a moment of nostalgic weakness I bought a shortcake maker (which, by the way, is the only thing I’ve ever found that is NOT available on Amazon.com!).
And it made these adorable little shortcakes! I LOVE THEM!
But this pan would work, too. Because you need a pan/gadget that’s useful for one thing only, right? But it’s FUN!
ANYWAY, my point is that you can easily make your very own shortCAKES at home! If you don’t have or want a fancy pan, just bake the cake in a square 8×8 or 9×9 pan and cut in to squares. This cake recipe I used is to die for. It is so good it’s ridiculous. I can’t wait to use it as cake, cake.
