Fresh Strawberry Shortcakes that are Gluten and Dairy Free

It’s one of my favourite times of the year, strawberry season! We have quite a few strawberry farms nearby, so I make it a point to visit a local patch and pick some delicious organic strawberries. Of course, strawberry jam is a must! But I also love traditional strawberry shortcake.

Having a gluten and dairy intolerance won’t stop me from baking a strawberry shortcake that I can enjoy too. Here is a fresh strawberry shortcake recipe that’s easy to make, has unrefined sugar, and is gluten and dairy free.
