Ted’s Strawberry Shortcake

Ted’s strawberry shortcake is a dish I recently had the opportunity to try when I was in Atlanta recently.  So if you have never been to Ted’s, you are in for a real treat.  Buffalo hamburgers, regular hamburgers, and some delicious home-style cooking abound here.  The restaurant has lovely decor, and the food is quite good for when you are dining out.

If you have never tried making your own shortcakes, you have been missing something. Sure, the shortcake you get in the store is tasty, but these homemade biscuits are so much more hearty. This is a dessert is perfect for the spring when fresh strawberries are available. I made one primary change in this recipe, I like to use fresh berries when they are available, so my recipe contains fresh strawberries, you could use frozen if you desire.

  • 1 pound strawberries washed and sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar for strawberries
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 
  • In a container with a lid, place strawberries, and sprinkle sugar over the strawberries. Let sugar marinate over the strawberries for a couple of hours before using. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir heavy cream into sifted flour, and mix gently until the flour is just incorporated. Gently knead and shape into 4 equal sized biscuits. 
  • Make four biscuits with dough, and place on a greased cookie sheet. If you have some dusting sugar, sprinkle a little onto the biscuits. Bake for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, the biscuits will be golden brown when done. Shortcake Assembly 1 biscuit 1 scoop Hagan Daas Vanilla Ice Cream Strawberries Whipped cream Slice shortcake in half, lay bottom of shortcake in a plate, then add a scoop of ice cream, a spoonful of strawberries, top with biscuit and whipped cream. 
  • Add additional strawberries to the plate around the biscuit. This is a great dessert to make ahead of time, and assemble the shortcakes right before dinner. I think if you added blackberries, or even blueberries to the mixture you would have a wonderful new creation.

    This is the RIGHT idea! No playing around! Heavy cream, Haagen Dazs ice cream… and FRESH strawberries! THAT is how you do it! I like to add a little butter in my biscuits, too. 😉
    Portion control is the key. Eat the good stuff… just in moderation.
