EASY STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKES



Sometimes the best things only need a couple of components. This is one of them. Simple. Easy. Cheap. TASTY!

Strawberries
Sugar
Pound Cake (or angel food)
Whip Cream

Cut the hull off the berry and then cut into fours; put in a Tupperware bowl or bowl with a lid. Pour sugar over the berries - the amount depends on how many strawberries you have - just eyeball it. Mix well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, enough for the sugar and berries to make a nice syrupy liquid.

Place your sliced cake of choice on a plate, spoon strawberries over top, finishing with a dollop (or several) of whip cream.

It doesn't get any easier or tastier.

One of my most favorite things EVER! I LOVE strawberry shortcake!
I frequently make it Trifle style!

Get big bowl, dump in half a yellow cake that's been cubed.
Then half a large container of thawed frozen-sliced-strawberries(the kind that has syrupy juice), and lots of whipped cream.
Repeat

Eat by the shovel full!
LOL

YUM!!! My fiance and I made easy shortcake just like this for our anniversary - it was AWESOME!! We used Entemann's (spelling?) butter loaf cake - oh my goodness, that stuff is good. Just don't eat half the loaf. Like I did. UGH. lol

Squeezing some citrus juice,orange or lemon,on the berries with the sugar, helps them to macerate.

Such and easy yummy dessert. One of my favorites. My Mom used to make the shortcake with a Bisquick receipe. That was also delicious.
