Strawberry Shortcake

Welcome to Recipe of the Month!

A Lodge community recipe club for all the cast iron pan fans out there.

Each month, we’re dropping a new recipe for everyone to make together, created by our own Chef Kris Stubblefield. All month long, Chef Kris and our community of chefs, cooks, and fans will share tips, techniques, inspired pairings, and unexpected twists to help you make this dish your own.

So get out your cast iron—and don’t forget to show us what you’re making by tagging @lodgecastiron on social!

Introducing the May recipe
Strawberry Shortcake
Fresh & Fluted Strawberry Shortcake

We don’t think there’s any better way to welcome summer produce than a delightfully simple and fruit-forward dessert. We start with a sweet and crumbly shortcake base, pile on fresh strawberries, and top it all off with a generous dollop of homemade whipped cream. Yeah, you can give a “yum!” to that!
