Strawberry Fields Make Shortcake

Strawberry fields forever… nah… my strawberry fields make shortcake!


Strawberry Fields and Strawberry Shortcake Recipe by


The wisteria that I planted is BAD invasive.  These strawberries are GOOD invasive!  Last year, they were only a few berry plants.  Now… HELLO strawberry goodness!!!!

I had no idea they would flourish so much this year.  I need to figure out a way to have them grow like this, off the ground.  The ones in the middle of the garden settle onto the ground and aren’t as nice.  It’s always a learning process.

I spy two berries waiting to be picked.   Fresh berries out of the garden have a taste like no other.  It is insane how good and sweet they are.

This is my quick, easy, and “healthier” version of the strawberry shortcake.

Bake a package of Pillsbury Grands, Jr.  Add strawberry preserves, strawberries, and whipped cream.  It has a lot less sugar, isn’t as sweet, but it really makes the strawberry flavor shine.

The berries in the garden are just starting to ripen, so I mixed my berries with store bought for this special treat.

    No doubt about it…strawberry shortcake is my favorite strawberry dessert!!! I made it for Memorial Day using homemade 5-flavor pound cake. I now have 5-flavor 5 new pounds on my hips! :-)

    Hooray for your strawberry patch! My Dad had a method to keep those strawberries that grow closer to the ground from going bad. I wish I would have paid attention to what it was so that I could share it. He always had loads of luscious, juicy strawberries. My Mom just recently had the strawberry patch – which ran the entire length of the patio – removed, and it made me very sad. Daddy maintained that patch for more than 30 years.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

      Hi Alycia – OH no so sad about the strawberry patch that was such a legacy in your family and brought so many memories. I never thought of it that way, but hopefully Stepson will be looking back on my strawberries the same way many years from now. The taste from the garden is soooo different than the store. Hugs, Holly

  2. Susan

    My family loves strawberries so much, I’d never have any to use for the short case. I’m so envious of your beautiful strawberry heaven.

    1. Holly

      Hi Susan – I was really surprised at how the 4-5 strawberries we planted last year just exploded. I hate having to contain them, I wish the garden would grow fresh strawberries all year long. Hugs, Holly

  3. Sue

    I am always buying strawberries and it would make sense to home grow them!!

    1. Holly

      They were a lot easier to grow than I thought. You can also grow them in containers. Just don’t let the birds or squirrels eat them. Hugs, Holly

  4. ARod

    wow quick easy and less sugar love it thanks so much for sharing

    1. Holly

      Hi ARod – The natural sweetness of fresh strawberries are all of the sugar needed. Hugs, Holly

  5. Melissa

    We grow 3 acres of strawberries here on our farm in NJ and I just love them. I love strawberry shortcake too.

    1. Holly

      Hi Melissa – I am soooooo coveting… 3 acres of strawberries? I don’t know what I would do with myself. Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Holly

  6. Shari Eckstrom

    My husband Tim beat me to the first ripe strawberry today and then had the nerve to gloat about it! Can’t wait til a few more start to ripen. First recipe on the list…Strawberry Shortcake! Thanks for linking up to the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop. We are so glad you came!

    1. Holly

      Hi Shari – Too funny and sounds like my house too! Hugs, Holly

  7. Carrie Groneman

    My husband brought in our first homegrown strawberries yesterday. When he went upstairs to work, I kinda taste-tested all of them, heehee. Thanks for sharing with Wonderful Wed Blog Hop. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

    1. Holly

      Hi Carrie – I won’t tell! I’ve had fresh strawberries on my cereal every morning for the last couple weeks. Hugs, Holly

  8. Cathy@LemonTreeDwelling

    Wow! Your strawberries exploded!! (We’ve never had much luck.) Love this easy shortcake recipe…thanks for sharing at SNF!

    1. Holly

      Hi Cathy – Glad you enjoyed the 2fer post. I was so excited at how our strawberries exploded. We’ve had several weeks of at least a cup of strawberries to harvest every other day. Hugs, Holly
