Orange Vanilla Strawberry Shortcake

orange vanilla strawberry shortcake

This delicious dessert was easy to make and tastes SO incredible! I used my simple tricks to make boxed cake mix taste homemade so it was really good!


  • 1 boxed cake mix, vanilla cake
  • eggs
  • butter    } these three will be based on what your box calls for — follow my tips here to make it perfect!
  • milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure orange extract
  • strawberries, cleaned and cut with a little sugar sprinkled on top! {I used 2 cups of strawberries with 1/8 cup of sugar}


Mix all ingredients together and bake in a pan according to the box directions. To serve, slice up and top with your fruit!

    Normally I’m not fond of strawberry flavors in my desserts, real strawberries, yes, but this sounds utterly delicious!
