At this time of the year, it is easy to find juicy, sweet, and fresh strawberries. Using sweet strawberries produce a great tasting shortcake. Homemade biscuits and strawberries are the stars in a delicious strawberry shortcake.

How to make strawberry shortcake?

If you like your shortcake with plenty of strawberry juice, you have to slice the strawberries and then sprinkle it with two tablespoons of sugar, mix for a minute and then cover for 7 minutes. Juices from the strawberries will come out, and you can use that juice to pour over the biscuit or even mix with the whipping cream.

You can make the biscuits a day ahead to save time and especially when your guests will be coming over the next day, and you have many dishes to cook. Keep the biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature. If the temperature is too hot in your house, then find a cool place and place the container there. Storing the biscuits in the fridge will make it dry.

When you are about to serve the shortcake, warm it in the microwave for 11 seconds, this will bring back the tender texture of the biscuits and the shortcake will be ready to receive the juice from the strawberries.

Using chocolate covered strawberries

If you want to get fancy or prepare for a special evening with your loved one, then how about some chocolate covered strawberries? And maybe some chocolate syrup on the side.
