A few weeks ago, I had a huge craving for some good old fashioned strawberry shortcake. However, I didn’t feel like playing around with any traditional recipes, I didn’t want to go out to buy any, I didn’t want to make a huge batch of anything since it would only be my husband and I eating it, and I really just wanted something fast and easy. I figured I would try to keep things SUPER simple and attempt using my usual pancake recipe as my shortcake base. Worked like a charm! I got my shortcake fix without the fuss or extra calories that traditional shortcakes would have. Definitely hit the spot!
I think I may need to start repurposing some old recipes more often… this was too easy! It’s the perfect little snack to split, great for the kids, or even as a post workout meal for yourself ( I could easily eat both little servings of this, no problem)!

I only have muscle egg vanilla. Do you think thie recipe would be as good with those in place of the strawberry? Maybe add a little strawberry extract?

HI Erin! Vanilla will work but the strawberry gives a VERY big flavor! I LOVE the strawberry MuscleEgg… super flavorful! You could try substituting with extract though!
