Valentine's Dessert

Jason's favorite dessert is Strawberry Shortcake- perfect for Valentine's Day
Once again I'm really not too very original. I turned to the old standby- bisquick!

I'm going to have to start making my own. I actually did find a recipie for premaking a baking mix. I think it's a great idea and I'll have to post it here but for now- just substitue what ever baking mix you prefer.

2 1/3 cup "baking mix" aka Bisquick
1/2 cup milk
3 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp butter or margarine

Mix everything into a soft dough. Then spoon it out onto an ungreased pan. The instructions I have say to do 6 spoonfuls. Usually we just put it into a 9x9 square pan as one big cake. This time though, I borrowed a cookie cutter from a friend and formed individual heart shaped cakes.

Preheat oven to 450 and cook 10 minutes or until browned-

Now, I always have to have some sort of "duh" moment in my cooking- you'll get to know that. This one: make sure the oven is completely heated BEFORE putting the cakes in. Otherwise you'll burn the bottoms.

Yes, our bottoms were burned. (lol!!)

Finally, top with sugared strawberries and whipped cream- YUM!!!


  1. Who cares about the bottoms when the tops look like that! Wow, that really looks delicious.

  2. I make these all the time for breakfast! I put some banana pudding in the middle with the strawberries and whip cream too! Yay for bisquik! I LOVE IT!
