Didn't seem thick enough to torte so I double the shortcake batter and baked two 9" cakes. I trimmed the tops so the strawberries/juices could soak into the cake faster! Delicious!

Would be much better with something besides instant pudding. ALL FLAVORS of instant pudding taste so artificial.

This was a big hit! The shortcake is easy and delcious and there is no need to double the recipe. Instead of boxed pudding I used the Creamy Vanilla Pudding off this site and it was gorgeous and delcious!

Fantastic. So much better than regular shortcake. I used the Jiffy all purpose baking mix. It is a satisfying dessert yet you dont have to feel as guilty. I will also try with peaches.Thanks for the great recipe. This has already become a regular.

Turned out BEAUTIFUL and tasted delicious. I don't understand why everyone is saying it's to thing to split?? Mine baked up rather tall. I used Cool Whip Lite and Bisquick baking mix. Will make again and again and I will try it with different fruits.

I give this 5 stars on taste. But 3 or 4 stars on presentation. It may have been my fault but the whole thing fell apart and looked a mess. But, it still tasted wonderful.
