When Strawberries are in full season : My teenagers beg me to make “Grandma’s Strawberry Shortcake”! We love this recipe with it’s texture and taste!
Unlike most strawberry shortcake recipes – this one doesn’t have Angel food cake . It’s more of a Sweet bread 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!
