Author: Kristen Wood


  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free all purpose flour blend with xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoon coconut sugar or any granulated sugar divided (see recipe)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
  • ¼ cup cold, cubed butter or plant-based butter
  • ¾ cup milk of choice I like to use oat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract gluten-free certified, if necessary
  • 1 pound sliced fresh (or thawed frozen) strawberries approximately 3 cups
  • regular or dairy-free whipped cream for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar and salt. Mix well.
  • Add the cold, cubed butter and using a pastry cutter or a fork, work the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add the milk and vanilla. Mix until a smooth batter forms.
  • Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, scoop mounds of batter onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 13 minutes or until bottoms are browning and tops are turning golden.
  • Meanwhile, prepare strawberries by mixing the sliced strawberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Using your hands or a fork, mix and mash the strawberries a little to release their juices. Set aside.
  • When the shortcakes are done, let them cool a few minutes. Serve shortcakes whole or sliced, topped with strawberry mixture and a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
