Muffin Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

The first thing I always make with the fresh strawberries of the season is a Strawberry Shortcake recipe.

However, we are not big fans of the store bought little cakes. They taste…fake? They always have a weird taste to them, and so we came up with our own strawberry shortcake recipe. Muffins.

If you have all of your ingredients out and ready to go, this is a less than 30 minute dessert your family will love.

Muffin Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

It all starts with the strawberries. Slice them up, add a little sugar, and set aside. Stir them occasionally, and they will soon create magic.

Yes, I own a real sifter. But I refuse to use it. Every time I came across a recipe that called for sifted anything, I would groan internally. Squeezing the handle, it clogging up, and then cleaning it. No thank you.

Discovered you can do the job just as well with a strainer. Put your dry ingredients in, tap the edge gently over your bowl, and toss it in the dishwasher.

Muffin Shortcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Move oven rack to middle position. Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray.
