Super Easy Strawberry Shortcake

Recommended Posts

Hi!

This is a very strange sounding recipe and I had my reservations but alas it was as tastey as it was easy. You will most likely have all the ingredients in your house. GFers and non-GFers alike loved it.

The recipe is from recipe zaar and is as follows. Enjoy!

1/2 cup butter

1 cup icing sugar (confectioners/powdered)

4 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup cornstarch

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12-muffin pan (or use liners).

In a large bowl cream butter and sugar, using electric mixer.

Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy.

In a small bowl mix the cornstarch and baking powder together and add slowly to the creamed mixture. (If added too quickly, it will fly about the kitchen.).

Mix until well blended.

Fill the greased muffin tins half full.

Bake for 15 minutes. (Test with a toothpick, after 15 minutes, even if the top looks shiny).

Remove from the pan while still warm. (They will look like little cupcakes.But trust me they will taste just like little shortcakes).

Serve topped with strawberries, and whipped cream.

Hi!

I hope those of you trying this tonight enjoy it!! We put whipped cream on top of the strawberries. I am sure any topping would be great - cool whip, whipped cream, etc.

I think this would be good with any kind of fruit too. My son (who actually does not have celiac and is very picky re: gluten-free food) at 4 of the muffins with butter and jam in one sitting.

Have fun!

Hi,

You are right, they are Very tasty !! I just made them.

I have a recipe that calls for angel food cake cut up and comstock blueberry filling and comstock strawberry filling, powdered sugar, cream cheese and cool whip and vanilla. You mix the cut up pieces of angel food cake (which I think these litte short cakes would be wonderful in) with the powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla and coolwhip, and then you layer in the blueberry and strawberry filling. I always make this on the 4th of July or when my family feels like having it. I will use you little short cakes in it from now on.

If anyone would like the recipe let me know and I will post it.

Thanks again

Sue

Hi!

Here's another really fun idea . . . I made these little shortcakes again tonight (soooo easy!). I filled half of the muffin tins with the batter, then to the remaining batter I added cocoa powder. I filled the other half of the cups with the chocolatate mix and then I added a little choc. batter to a couple of the vanilla ones for a marbled effect. So we ended up with three different kinds of cakes.

All came out great and I have very happy kids! I'm thinking the chocolate ones would be good with vanilla icecream and toppings.

Hey,

great picture . . . making me hungry! Try 'em in chocolate next. We sliced them into round disks and made like little woopie pies by putting whipped cream between two disks. Yum!

Very strange but delicious recipe!
