Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake

Last year for my birthday I received The Everything Gluten-Free Baking Cookbook and while I haven’t made so many recipes from it, instead relying on Cooksmarts and Pinterest, I decided to turn to this book when I came up with the idea to make strawberry shortcake for my FIL’s birthday.

It was a pretty good cake, so while I won’t post the recipe here, I will recommend you buy the book and make some yourself. The book also has lots of othe recipes for things like waffles, pancakes, cookies, and more. I plan to try out some more of the cake recipes and see if they are good.The cake itself set up nicely in both the muffin cups and in the baking dish. Below, it looks very similar to the pound cake my mother would make for strawberry shortcake.We enjoyed it the whole week of my FIL’s birthday by heaping strawberries and fresh raspberries from the garden on top, finishing with whipped cream and fresh peppermint.Of course below is how I really ate it… my family knows how obsessed I can be with whipped cream. If only we could buy Cool Whip here!To be fair, at the end of the week, the cake was drying out more, so I needed that extra whipped cream.

Are you a fan of strawberry shortcake?
