Heat up the grill and enjoy this take on traditional strawberry shortcake.

Grilled Strawberry Shortcake


  • 2 1/3 cups biscuit mix
  • ½ cup milk, plus more for brushing
  • 2 Tbsp. turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw)
  • 1 quart (4 cups) strawberries, sliced
  • ¼ cup sugar

Whipped Cream

  • Chilled 16-ounce mason jar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2-3 Tbsp. sugar, to taste ½ tsp.
  • Vanilla extract



  1. Preheat grill fitted with an oiled cast iron griddle or large cast iron pan to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine biscuit mix and milk.
  3. Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto hot griddle, creating 6 biscuits
  4. Brush with milk and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  5. Close grill and bake until biscuits are cooked through and browned on the bottom, being careful not to burn them.
  6. While biscuits are baking, slice strawberries and combine with ¼ cup sugar.
  7. Make whipping cream: combine heavy cream, sugar and vanilla in a chilled mason jar, close tightly and vigorously shake for 2-3 minutes. Tip: hold the lid rather than the sides of the jar so the warmth of your hands doesn’t slow down the process. Another tip: take turns with friends!
  8. To assemble, cut each biscuit in half and top bottom half with berries and whipped cream. Top with the other biscuit half and a dollop of whipped cream.
