Lockeland Table’s Strawberry Shortcake

East Nashville’s Lockeland Table makes their shortcake in a large pan and cuts them, rather than shaping them into individual shortcakes. We like the ease.

Ingredients

Shortcake
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 7 tablespoon unsalted very cold butter
  • 2 2/3 cups heavy whipping cream, cold
Strawberries
  • 2 pints of Delvin Farms strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
Vanilla Whipped Cream
  • 1/2 quart heavy cream
  • 2-4 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or seeds of 1 vanilla bean

Preparation

Shortcake

  1. Preheat oven to 450 & butter a quarter sheet pan or 8x13 glass baking dish. In a stand mixer, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Add butter and blend for about 3-4 minutes, or until butter and flour look like coarse meal the size of peas.
  2. With mixer on low speed, slowly add the cream. Let dough come together in a shaggy mess. On a floured work surface, work the dough together, then fold it on itself a few times until no longer clumpy.
  3. Spread dough into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a light buttery golden brown. Let cool before serving.

Strawberries

  1. Combine all together.
  2. Let stand for at least three hours before stirring and serving.

Vanilla Whipped Cream

  1. Combine in stand mixer with whisk attachment.
  2. Whisk until medium peaks form. Should your whipped cream deflate during storage, just re-whip.

To Plate

Cut shortcake into squares. Top with strawberries and whipped cream. You could go crazy and add some vanilla ice cream.

Serves 9.
