A few years back, with an abundance of strawberries on on my counter we decided to make a strawberry shortcake. I actually think it was my daughter Leah’s idea: she was coming home to visit and thought it would be the perfect thing to prepare. She was right!
If I recall correctly, that year it was such a hit I ended up making five cakes in a very short time — two over that very first weekend.
Now, the onset of summer always means Strawberry Shortcake; the berries are super sweet, the temperatures are hot and no one wants a heavy dessert. And, if there’s ever any leftovers it makes a wonderfully decadent breakfast!
