Strawberry Shortcake Cake (Real Food)

Written by Tiffany H


CakeI can’t believe I got a recipe together today. And it actually looks pretty good! According to hubby and our friend John, it’s blog worthy, so I decided to share. 😉

Shortcake Cake

This pregnancy is really throwing me for a loop. Daily I have totally different and new aversions. I can’t use any of my essential oils, because the smells upset my stomach so much. I can’t cook meat, but I dared to the other day. I decided to try to make tacos, got a pack of ground beef out of the freezer, and opened it up to thaw. Surprise, with as bad as ground beef looks (and smells and feels and tastes) to me anymore, this didn’t even look like ground beef. It was more like a really fatty ground sausage. *GAG* I dared to cook it, ignoring it as much as possible, and sure enough it didn’t cook like ground beef. Idk how I ate it, but it was some sort of miracle.


Back to cake! This recipe called for all-purpose flour, which I always use (and adore) white spelt in place of it, but alas, I was out. So I used a combination of Einkorn and sprouted spelt flour, and it turned out really well. I’ll share both options in the recipe. 😉

    • Hi Sonia! I do have a print option. 🙂 It’s in the actual recipe card, next to save recipe, under the title. 🙂 It’s a little gray button! Let me know if you still don’t see it, and I’ll have my IT guy (Hubby, lol) look into it. 😉 Thanks so much for the sweet comment!
