Today on The Stay At Home Chef
I'm showing you how to make
Strawberry Shortcake
Strawberry Shortcake is a beautiful dessert that's perfect
for spring and summer when strawberries are in season
To start you'll need
4 cups of all purpose flour
You want to place that into the bowl of a food processor
Now you could also do this in a bowl with a pastry cutter
but trust me, a food processor is a lot easier
Next add in 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of baking powder
and 2 teaspoons of salt
Then we'll pop the lid on and give this a quick pulse
Now this is a lot of the flour mixture so
depending on the size of your food processor
you may need to do this in batches
We are making a three layer strawberry shortcake
so it's a lot of dough
Next you'll need 8 tablespoons of cubed salted butter
We'll place that in and we'll start mixing that in as well
or you can use a pastry cutter if you're doing this by hand
So just a few pulses to combine until it looks like cornmeal
Once the butter is all cut in we're going to pour this
into a large mixing bowl
Now if you don't have a food processor
you'd be using a pastry cutter like this
and rocking it gently back and forth to cut all of the butter in
Or if you don't have a pastry cutter
you'd use two butter knives and simply cross them
against each other to cut the butter in that way
but that is significantly harder
Then we'll pour in 1 cup of milk and I'd use either
2% or whole milk as well as
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
and we're going to stir this together
You should end up with a nice sticky dough
Divide it into 3 pieces
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
and lightly grease three 9-inch cake pans
and I like to add a little piece of parchment paper
on the bottom to make sure our cakes come out super easy
Take each piece of dough and press it gently
into the bottom of that pan and you want it to be
as flat and smooth as possible
Once they're all smooshed in the pan
we're going to bake these at 400 degrees fahrenheit
for 20 to 25 minutes until the tops are golden brown
Meanwhile we're going to put together our strawberry
and whipped cream fillings
You'll need 2 pounds of quartered strawberries in a bowl
You'll want to sprinkle on 2 tablespoons of sugar
the zest from 1 lemon
and the juice from 1 lemon which is about 4 tablespoons
and toss it all together
Set those aside and they'll get all sweet and syrup-y
and delicious
I love adding the lemon and lemon zest because
it adds a lot of brightness to the strawberries
Next we're going to make our whipped cream
and we want to make a stabilized whipped cream
so we have some special additions today
Pour 2 cups of heavy cream into the bowl of a stand mixer
or if you don't have one you can also use a hand mixer
Then we'll sprinkle in
1/3 cup of powdered sugar
which has cornstarch cut in and will help stabilize it
then I add in 2 tablespoons of actual cornstarch as well
and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
and we'll start this whipping
Now instead of using the cornstarch and powdered sugar
you could also use gelatin but I find that this
is an easier way to stabilize whipped cream at home
After a few minutes of whipping
stiff peaks will form and you're ready
Place your whipped cream in the fridge until
you are ready to assemble the cake
You need the cake layers to be completely cool
before assembling or your whipped cream will melt
Start assembling by placing a bunch of strawberries
on the first layer
Then we're going to take our whipped cream
I've put mine in a piping bag but you can just scoop it on
with a spoon as well
And we'll give a nice layer of whipped cream as well
Get some of those berries back on
And then just keep on layering until you get to the top
On this top pieces I'm just going to give a swirl
in the middle and finish it off with
a little pile of berries on top
This cake is best eaten fresh
and needs to be stored in the refrigerator
Now I'm sure you're all wondering how to cut it
The trick is to use a serrated knife
That'll give you a clean slice
