Strawberry shortcake with Co-op Strawberry Lemonade Bread

Serves 6


  • 1 pint organic heavy whipping cream

  • 6 tablespoons plus 3 tablespoons cane sugar

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1 pint organic strawberries, hulled and quartered

  • 1 loaf Co-op made Strawberry Lemonade Bread


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine prepped strawberries and lemon juice, adding sugar to taste (1-3 tablespoons). Let sit for at least 15 minutes, allowing the added sugars to draw out the strawberries’ juice.

  2. Combine whipping cream and 6 tablespoons sugar and whip until soft peaks form.

  3. Slice bread into 6 equal slices.

  4. Top sliced bread with generous spoonfuls of strawberries, and finish with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.
