I wonder why it is people buy those Hostess sponge cakes with all those questionable ingredients and that pre-made strawberry glaze laden with sugar? Maybe one day I will write a post about that…..I think it has something to do with bad magic food.
One thing I do know is that my Mom made some home made strawberry shortcake the other night and it was delicious! Even my oldest daughter, who for some inexplicable reason dislikes strawberries, had two helpings of this!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached white flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbl sugar
6 Tbl butter
1 Cup Milk
Fresh Strawberries (about 2 pints)
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened apple juice concentrate, thawed
Heavy whipping cream
Combine flour, baking powder, and sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter until crumbly.
Stir in 1/2 of the milk; gradually add more until the dough clings together.
Drop onto a greased cookie sheet. This makes about 12 cakes (they look just like biscuits!).
Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes until light golden brown.
Mash 1/2 of the strawberries and add apple juice concentrate. Slice remainder of the strawberries into pieces and add to strawberry mixture.
Beat the heavy whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks. Do not add sugar! This is good all by itself.
Cut the shortcakes in half and layer with the strawberry mixture, then top with the cream.
This was so good!
