On August 13, Stewart uploaded a photo of the perfect light summer dessert that we’re going to try as soon as possible. She posted the updated dessert with the caption, “We’re turning the cake back into shortcake! Our sweet take on this beloved dessert swaps the usual biscuits for small cakes, using a one-bowl cupcake batter that’s easy, no mixer required.” ! When the cupcakes are baked and cooled, slice them horizontally and fill with macerated strawberries and whipped cream. The result is perfection on a plate.

This whole, lightweight dessert takes literally less than an hour to prepare and cook (and you can serve it to up to eight guests!) so whether it’s for summer parties or a super fun night in, you can’t go wrong with this treat. . For the ingredients, you’ll need strawberries, all-purpose flour, kosher salt, lemon juice, and baking soda, just to name a few.

The three-step recipe is super easy to follow, just start by brushing the muffin tin with butter for each small shortcake, and in no time you’ll be tossing the strawberries with a plethora of other ingredients.

Seriously, who’s ready for this dessert? We know we are.
