Old Fashion Strawberry Shortcake
There is nothing better than walking out to your garden, picking your own strawberries and turning them into this delicious Old Fashion Strawberry Shortcake. This recipe tastes just like Grandma use to make. The Shortcake soaks up that wonderful strawberry juice making it the perfect dessert!
Make the strawberry mixture
with two ingredients.
Rinse your strawberries and cut the tops off.
Using a pastry blender, squish the
strawberries bringing out their juice.
Add sugar (to your taste).
I added about 1/3 cup of sugar to my
quart of strawberries. Keep tasting until
you get the sweetness you desire. Mix well,
refrigerate and let sit for at least 30 minutes.
Make the shortcake:
Add Bisquick, milk, sugar
and butter to a bowl.
Using a fork, mix well until
it turns into a dough.
Lightly dust the counter with Bisquick
and turn the dough onto the counter.
Knead the dough about 10 times
until it can form a ball.
Roll the dough about 1/2” thick.
Use a 3” wide glass or cookie cutter
and cut circles out of the dough.
Keep reforming the unused dough into
a ball and roll it to continue cutting
more. I cut a total of nine shortcakes out
of mine. Place the dough circles onto an
ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for
10-12 minutes or until the bottoms
are a golden brown.
Let cool or eat warm served with the
strawberries and topped with whipped cream.
Old Fashion Strawberry Shortcake
- 1 quart fresh strawberries
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar (or to taste)
- 2 & 1/3 cups Bisquick Original baking mix
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 3 Tbsp melted butter
- Sweetened prepared whipped cream
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Wash the strawberries and cut the tops off.
- Using a pastry blender, squish the strawberries so the juice starts to flow and strawberries are chopped up.
- Stir in the sugar a little at a time, tasting each time until you get your desired sweetness.
- Cover and set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- Make the shortcakes: In a bowl combine Bisquick, milk, sugar and butter.
- Use a fork and mix thoroughly until it turns into a dough.
- Lightly sprinkle Bisquick on a counter or cutting board.
- Place the dough on it and knead the dough about 10 times until it will form a ball.
- Using a rolling pin, roll the dough about 1/2” thick.
- Using a 3” glass or cookie cutter, cut circles out of the dough. Take the leftover dough and make another ball, roll it again and cut more 3” circles. Repeat until the dough is used up. I made 9 circles of dough.
- Place the dough circles onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms are a golden brown.
- Serve warm (or let cool) with the strawberries and top with the whipped cream.

No Bisquick here dear but can make my very own shortbread with home made butter and egg yolks from our hens. Mixes you have or those sold in native England do not exist here as so many things outside of Latvia.A waking up nation of million folk in wilds of forest and lakes are some 50 years or more behind of civilization in many things and far ahead in technology as kids here make computers before using them. I use a 11 year old how taught me how to down load free photo for my blog. Cleaver but I bake cakes and bread that stuns them that are merely old fashioned from grandmothers time for me.
You are amazing can you adopt me…hahahaa
Wow ! Yummilicious !! 🙂
Thank you it was so good!
We do grwo fruit and half acre of strawberrys in rows in field gardens under wheat straw to keep the fruit from soils. just no made up mixes for fruit flan so glad I can make all with out but would it not be lovely,lovely lovely. to have it all in shops .Big stores and German supermarkets and none sell anything but base goods. Maybe the Latvians dont bake just buy made up cakes.
I have mine in straw too but not a half acre! If not for people like you so many people would mis out!
Oh my gosh that looks so yummy! 😋strawberries are just in season here and I am dying to make some jam!
Thank you Lana! Jam is on my list for this weekend!
Awesome! I am hoping I can too! It’s supposed to rain here so no camping for us! Enjoy your jamming! Do you make just strawberry jam or other berries too? I’ve only made freezer jam, I’m not very creative.
I have made both, freezer and canned. I am going to make a batch for the refrigerator because my grandkids are here from Thursday through late Sunday night. It won’t last long…lol
Awesome! Enjoy them!☀️Have a great weekend!
this is one of my favorite desserts
I agree! But I only make it when strawberries are in season locally (my garden now). Store bought never taste as good..lol
Strawberry shortcake is one of my favorite desserts! I haven’t baked in forever but I might have to try this one.
Enjoy! I wish I had made a larger batch of the strawberry mixture because we have Shortcake leftover. Oh well, guess I will have to make some more….hahahaha
Yum – favorite summer treat 👏🏻
We recently made this but with scones (my husband Terry made his first scones) and it was so yummy!
Yum! They are similar to the shortcake and soak in all that delicious juice! WTG Terry!
This looks so good. I wonder if it’s as good with a sugar substitute? Perhaps I’ll make it for my sister.
Absolutely you can use a substitute! Just add a little at a time and keep tasting. If you get really sweet strawberries you won’t need much. Thank you!
Yum! I guess I need to start growing strawberries now!
Definitely worth it!
Perfect summer treat!
I agree! Nothing like fresh strawberries!
Looks too tasty
All my strawberries got eaten by a team of blackbirds this year!
OH NO!!!!! We have to pick our early in the morning to save ours.
Very sensible. 🙂 We bought bird netting – they still managed to get most of the berries by sticking their beaks through & scuffling the dirt away from under it. They were quite smart!
Oh they sure are! My next challenge is getting my blueberries picked before they eat them!
Wow! Looks lovely!❤
o my God I want it!! I could literally smell it 😍
LOL I need to pick more strawberries today but jam is next on the schedule!
jaaaammmm o my God. I wish I was living nearby..I would never leave your home.
That’s why my husband has been here for almost 28 years..hahahahahaha
Yummy. Thanks for sharing
“Oh my” is all I can say! It’s not a treat to eat when you have pants with a zipper and waistband.
Hahahaha you are so right Linda!
This looks so good!

Love-love-loved this story. Rachael I hope I still know you when you are famous!
I wrote a short story on my blog “Racheal’s Novels” and you were one of the characters. I apologise in advance if I’ve offended you by doing that. I didn’t mean to. It’s just that today “Racheal’s Novels” turns a year old, so I wrote a story in celebration of it, and thought I would have some bloggers as characters alongside myself. Hope you don’t mind, and I pingbacked your post. Here’s the link to the article if you want to read it:
OMG Racheal that was awesome!Iit was so cool reading about all our blogger friends! I had to read it to my husband and we both giggled! Thank you truly enjoyable!
Thank you!!! You’re welcome! I had soo much fun writing it, especially with me, Britchy, and the Eclectic Contrarian. Tell your husband that I said ‘thank you’. I wasn’t sure how you would react to the line about you and your husband, so I’m glad that you both really enjoyed it.
You’re most welcome!

i like how you mash the strawberries and don’t cook them. This is going to work very well for me. 🙂
Awesome! I think they have so much more flavor this way.
