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!)
I thought it was very heavy and chewy. Generally OK flavor, but not very sweet. Won't make again.
This was delicious and very easy to make. People were licking their plates. Thanks for posting this recipe.
Perfect texture! Loved it!
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!
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!
Loved this! The shortcake was tender and soft and a little spongy, just right! Not very sweet on its own, which was good since the strawberries were sweet. :) Quick, easy, and will save you a trip to the grocery store next time you want a strawberry and shortcake, will never buy the store made shortcakes again!
I made this recipe exactly as written, however I had to bake this about 10 or 15 minutes longer than stated for the toothpick to come out clean. Oven temps. vary though so that was not a big deal. This recipe was very good. I chose this recipe because it has less sugar in the cake batter than others like it making it a little less sweet than most short cakes. However this was very good for my diabetic husband, as for me, I just poured more sugar on my strawberries. With the strawberries and whipped cream tastes sweet and has an old fashioned feel about it. Excellent recipe!
