  • Author: Nicole Nared-Washington from Brown Sugar Food Blog

  • Yield: 8 1x


This “Po Man’s Strawberry Shortcake Recipe is made using a fried biscuit tossed in sugar, topped with strawberry topping, whipped cream, and vanilla ice cream.


  • 1 can 8 count large biscuits
  • 1 ½ c. sugar
  • 11 oz jar of strawberry topping
  • 8 oz. whipped topping
  • 1 ½ c. fresh strawberries, diced
  • Vanilla ice cream


  1. Using a deep fryer, fill halfway with vegetable oil and heat on 350 Degrees.
  2. Place a paper towel on a cooling rack and set aside. Also, add sugar to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Open the can of biscuits. Begin to flatten the biscuits, slightly, while extending the circumference of the biscuit an extra ¼ inch.
  4. Place the biscuit in the hot oil and cook on both sides for about 3 minutes. Toss on both sides until cooked to avoid from getting too dark. Remove from oil and place on a lined cooling rack for about 2 minutes. Afterward, toss in sugar and set aside.
  5. NOTE: If you happen to cut open the biscuit and the dough is not cooked, place back in the fryer for an extra minute and toss in sugar accordingly.
  6. Once the biscuit is cooked and coated, place in a bowl and top with a tablespoon of strawberry topping, add a scoop of ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, and a tablespoon of fresh strawberries and serve.
