  • Fresh strawberries
  • Whipped cream or cool whip (for homemade whip cream you’ll need heavy cream and powdered sugar )
  • Poundcake, shortcake biscuits or angel food cake


  1. Prepare the Strawberries:
    • Rinse the fresh strawberries under cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
    • Hull the strawberries by removing the green stems and any tough white cores.
    • Slice the strawberries into thin, uniform slices. If you prefer, you can also dice them for a different texture.
  2. Whip the Cream:
    • If you’re using store-bought whipped cream, simply give it a good shake and it’s ready to go.
    • For homemade whipped cream, pour chilled heavy cream into a mixing bowl with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar (taste and add more sugar to your liking
    • Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the cream on medium-high speed until soft peaks form.
    • Be careful not to over-whip, as the cream can become grainy. Soft peaks should hold their shape but still be creamy and smooth.
  3. Assemble the Shortcakes:
    • Dice the poundcake and place in a cup 
    • Spoon a generous portion of whipped cream
    • Arrange a layer of sliced strawberries on top of the whipped cream.
    • Continue to layer one more time!
  4. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once assembled, your Strawberry Shortcakes are ready to be enjoyed!
    • For an extra touch of elegance, you can dust the top of each shortcake with powdered sugar or garnish with a fresh strawberry.
    • Serve immediately and savor every blissful bite of this classic dessert.

  • Feel free to get creative with your Strawberry Shortcakes! Add a drizzle of chocolate sauce or caramel for a decadent twist, or sprinkle chopped nuts on top for added crunch.
