Strawberry Shortcake


Strawberry Shortcake is popular dessert in my family. I’m not  a fan of those sponge cake cups you find in the produce so I get my strawberry dessert fix in other ways. This recipe changes that – instead of using the store bought cups or a pound cake I used  Irish Tea Cake as the base. The cake is just sweet enough to not outshine the berries and is more moist than pound cake.

Strawberry Shortcake


  • 1 Irish Tea Cake
  • 1 pound of strawberries washed, hulled, and sliced
  • 2-4 tablespoons sugar
  • Sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping


Mix the strawberries and sugar. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. When ready to serve top slices of tea cake with strawberries and syrup and dollop with sweetened whipped cream.
