"Oh my goodness, was this ever a hit with our family. I found it a much easier version than rolling and cutting out individual biscuits. The shortcake itself is so pretty with strawberry slices tucked into it and visible for the top. The biscuit was cooked perfectly and easy to cut/serve. Enjoy this with the macerated strawberries on top. You may also wish to serve it with whipped cream and/or ice cream."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

Lightly grease a 10 inch cast iron skillet.

Step 3

Whisk together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

Step 4

In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg yolk, and vanilla.

Step 5

Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, press butter cubes into the flour mixture until pea-size pieces form.

Step 6

Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk mixture.

Step 7

Stir and fold the batter until just combined and a shaggy dough starts to form.

Step 8

Transfer the dough to the prepared skillet and press evenly into the pan (it should be a thick layer).

Step 9

Gently press the strawberry slices into the dough.

Step 10

Bake for about 25-30 minutes; until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 11

Let cool for about 10 minutes.

Step 12

Meanwhile, for topping, stir together the quartered strawberries, lemon zest, and remaining 3 T. sugar in another large bowl. Let stand until the berries have released juices, about 20-30 minutes.

Step 13

Spoon strawberry mixture and juices over sliced shortcake pieces and enjoy!
