  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream


  1. Gently toss the sliced strawberries with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar in a bowl. Set aside to macerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a round cake pan.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate it until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Stir in the buttermilk and vanilla extract until just combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Transfer the dough to the greased cake pan and pat it down evenly.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the shortcake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Let the shortcake cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. To assemble, slice the cooled shortcake in half horizontally. Spoon some macerated strawberries onto the bottom half, then add a layer of whipped cream. Place the top half of the shortcake over the cream.
  10. Garnish with additional strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream.
