Spring is in the air and with that comes some really good summer time and spring time desserts. It has been 3 years since I have gone gluten free which means 3 years since one of my favorite desserts. Strawberry Shortcake. Oh how I miss those delicious soft cakes topped with strawberries and whip cream.
Good Cook (sponsor) recently gave me a chance to try their Bake-A-Bowl Pan from their Sweet Creations line. Oh the possibilities of this beauty! it is easy to use and easy to clean. You can use it make a dinner or to make a dessert. I went with the strawberry shortcake route, but I had to figure out how to make it gluten free.
This was really simple to make with the pan. First mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together. Cut in some shortening, then mix in egg and milk.
Once mixed together scoop about 1/3 cup into the pan (up to the fill line). Place the top of the pan on and back at 425 for about 15 minutes.
The result are these light fluffy cakes. For the strawberries I had to use frozen because the fresh ones in our store were not so fresh. I took 2 bags (about 3 cups worth) and added 3/4 cup of sugar and mixed well. Top on the shortcake then top with whipped cream and if want drizzle some strawberry juice on top of that.
Below you will find the recipe for this in our new easy to read and print format. These were perfect for something I have been wanting for awhile now.
