Once you have got the berries prepared, you can make the rest of this delicious dessert in just minutes. Mix the cut strawberries with ¼ cup of the sugar and lemon juice in an 8-inch square baking dish. In a separate medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and 1 cup of the remaining sugar. Add the butter and cut it in with a pastry cutter or two knives until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Stir in the milk until the dough comes together. Dollop the batter on top of the strawberries in the pan in large spoonfuls. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of sugar over the top.
Then pop it in the oven for 40 minutes in the oven until the topping is cooked through and golden brown on top.. Top this dessert with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and you’ve basically got an inside out strawberry shortcake. Enjoy a little bit of strawberry heaven!
