Strawberry Lemon Curd Shortcake

by Sarah on June 9, 2011

It’s time to admit the truth.

I use Bisquick to make shortcakes.

Don’t judge.  They always come out perfect!  A touch sweet, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Why mess with that?

I dolled these shortcakes up with a few dollops of homemade Meyer lemon curd in the middle, along with just-barely-sweetened ripe strawberries from the strawberry stand and some freshly whipped cream.

*P.S.  This is not a paid endorsement, I just like to use Bisquick.

Strawberry Lemon Curd Shortcake


  • 4 cups ripe strawberries
  • 1-3 Tbsp sugar (to taste) for strawberries
  • 1 cup Meyer lemon curd, homemade or store-bought
  • 2-1/3 cups Bisquick
  • 3 Tbsp sugar, for shortcakes
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 425*. Slice the strawberries and put them in a bowl with sugar to taste.
  • In another bowl, mix together the Bisquick, melted butter and 3 Tbsp sugar. Drop, by spoonfuls, onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a Silpat. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottoms. Cool on a rack.
  • Whip the cream with the vanilla and powdered sugar.
  • To assemble: Cut shortcakes in half, horizontally, and spread 2-3 Tbsp lemon curd on the bottom half. Add a spoonful or two of sliced strawberries and a dollop of cream. Place the top half of the shortcake on top and spoon more berries over and top with more whipped cream.
