If you're only going to make one strawberry shortcake recipe this summer, let this be the one! It's a recipe for classic strawberry shortcake that's deliciously old-fashioned—because why mess with a good thing? We love the recipe because it's easy to put together in a pinch, and it highlights one of summer's sweetest crops: strawberries! Here's how it's done:
1) Cut strawberries (32 ounces' worth) into quarters, then toss them in 1/2 cup white sugar and set aside.
2) Beat one cup of whipping cream at high speed, gradually adding 2 tbs of sugar. Chill the whipped cream once soft peaks form.
3) Make the shortcakes using 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/4 cup sugar. Cut in 3/4 cup cold butter.
