EXCELLENT!! I needed to make this dairy free, so I used almond milk instead, and I prefer palm oil shortening instead of veg. shortening. I also wanted to serve this as a trifle, so I baked it in a 9x13 pan, cut cake into cubes and layered in the trifle dish with strawberries. I served the whipped cream on the side. I also really liked it topped with sour cream mixed with maple syrup, instead of whipped cream. Mmmmm. I just printed and added this to "my family's favorite recipe binder." Thanks for this recipe!
Do not recommend this one, sorry. If you make it, I would recommend butter only - I used 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening but it was still no good. It does need to bake longer than the recipe calls for as well. The texture was pretty good though. Flavor with the berries & whip: eh - bleh to me....
Perfect shortcake base. I used butter in place of shortening and did not use the melted butter. It was a great compromise between the two standard types - biscuit vs. spongecake. This was great. Quick, easy, good texture and not too sweet. I served it with fresh berries and homemade sweetened whipped cream. Kids and adults loved it. I will make it again.
I followed the recipe exactly as written (though I did have to bake an extra 10-15 minutes as well before it was set in the middle) and this was a FANTASTIC shortcake recipe! We had guests over, and all 5 of us LOVED this recipe. Delicious (especially with some fresh made whipped cream - YUMM!)
This was delicious and very easy to make. People were licking their plates. Thanks for posting this recipe.
Great recipe, very good and even better because it's so easy. We had very sweet strawberries that were locally grown so I skipped the sugar in them and it was still great. Did I mention how quick and easy this is to make? Love that!
Perfect texture! Loved it!
This shortcake was fabulous - like a slightly moist/spongy biscuit - just perfect. Was hesitant to try it because it seemed way too simple, but I will probably never use another recipe for shortcake. Made it exatly as written, as other reviewers mentioned did have to bake about 10 minutes longer. I cut the cake into 8 pie shaped wedges which I cut in half horizontally. Mashed some berries with a little truvia to make a "sauce" and then sliced the remaining berries with no sugar. I didn't use whipped cream and instead put a small dollop of plain greek yogurt on the top. Divine!
