Grandma's Strawberry Shortcake Recipe |

When Strawberries are in the entire season: My teenagers beg me to make “Grandma’s Strawberry Shortcake”!  We love this recipe with its texture and taste!

Unlike most strawberry shortcake recipes – this one doesn’t have Angel food cake. It’s more of a Sweetbread texture!  It doesn’t get soggy at all, even if it sits in your fridge for a day or two.

It’s not too sweet either – the sweetness comes from the strawberries and not the cake.

Here’s “Grandma’s Strawberry shortcake recipe ” I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine!
