Easy Strawberry Shortcake Recipe:


Store bought pound cake, cut into cubes
Whipped Cream (see below)
Fresh Strawberries
Orange zest (optional)


Prepare the cake according to the box instructions and bake in a sheet pan (the cake will be thin). Let the cake cool completely.

Homemade Strawberry Whipped Cream


4 tablespoons sugar
2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoon strawberry extract
Red food coloring (optional)


  1. Place a metal mixing bowl and your beaters in the freezer.
  2. Remove and add the sugar, strawberry extract, and cream to the bowl.
  3. Add a few drops of red food coloring to tint the cream pink. (optional – if you don’t care about the true pink color)
  4. With your mixer on low, beat the cream until it thickens and you have stiff peaks.

To Assemble:

  1. Fill the mason jar (I used 4oz jars) about ¾ of the way full with the pound cake cubes.
  2. Top with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. Repeat with remaining dishes.
  3. Garnish with a bit of orange zest, if desired.
  4. Store in the refrigerator and serve cold.

    I’ve made strawberry shortcake before, but I’ve never used a strawberry extract for a whipped topping. Will have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday Linky Party.
