Berry shortcake with self rising flour recipe

Strawberry and blueberry shortcake with self rising flourI finally found my absolute favorite shortcake recipe. I’m admittedly pretty picky about shortcake, and like to consider myself a connoisseur of sorts. So, when I found a quick and easy shortbread recipe with self rising flour that seemed pretty different to ones I had made in the past, I was super excited to try it out.

I was extra excited when I saw that I could substitute self-rising flour in the recipe, which I happily did {as well as changing a few other key details and omitting the heavy cream}. Remember back when my husband purchased that large bag of self-rising flour and I was hunting for ways to use it all because I didn’t want to store it for months? I laugh about that now because self-rising flour has become one of our pantry staples since we love all of our newfound recipes so much. These days, I look for any opportunity to use it, and this was yet another win.Strawberry and blueberry shortcake with self rising flourThis shortcake recipe with self rising flour is the perfect complement to summertime berries. I prefer it in “drop biscuit” form where you don’t roll it out and use cookie cutters, but instead just scoop up dollops of batter and drop it onto the cookie sheet. You *can* roll it out and cut it into perfect circle shapes if you want, but it’s delicious either way you decide to do it.

Breads are apparently popular with the pinning types, because both posts are creeping up on our top posts on Pinterest as well.
