This Keto Strawberry Shortcake recipe uses Carbquik Baking Mix as its base so it has just 5g net carbs per slice.
Top of the morning to you!
I've been making Keto Strawberry Shortcake so, obviously, I'm thinking about the Strawberry Shortcake dolls I had as a kid in the 1980's.
I found some of the old Strawberry Shortcake commercials on Youtube. (commercial below)
Ahhh. I can almost smell the dolls through the screen. They had such wonderful fruity smells. Even the villains, Sour Grapes and the Peculiar Purple Pie Man smelled good. And I love how each character came with its own spirit animal. Good stuff.
Also good stuff, is this recipe for Keto Strawberry Shortcake.
It's made with my new friend, the Carbquik Baking Mix. This is one of the best low carb flour alternatives I've found so far. Just like Bisquick, this mix is great for pancakes, biscuits, and shortcake.
How do you make this low carb shortcake?
To make this easy Keto shortcake, you just mix Carbquik Baking Mix up with water, cream, sweetener, and melted butter and bake it in a round cake pan. Let it cool and then top it with the berries of your choice. Soon you'll have a light and fluffy low carb Strawberry Shortcake with only 5g net carb per slice.
The Peculiar Purple Pie Man would be particularly impressed.Print
