I made this recipe as stated, except that I used an 8" cake pan instead of 9", since others said the shortcake was too thin to split into layers. I baked it at 400 for 15-17 minutes until golden. It was very easy to split. The only thing I didn't like about this recipe was the shortcake itself -- I liked it on its own, but when mixed with the fruit and cream, it seemed stale and ... salty? It just didn't do anything for me, and seemed kind of out of place. My 2 brothers agreed, and we all pushed the cake to the side and gobbled up the strawberries and cream on their own. My mom was the only one who thought it was perfect, though she admits that she hates other shortcakes made with sponge or angel food cake. Either way, I certainly would not double the shortcake recipe! It doesn't seem like much, but there really was plenty.
