I used evaporated milk straight from can, since I had no cream. Found shortcake very good, not dry for me. Had strawberries that were really fresh. End result was excellent.

I loved this biscuit like shortcake, not too sweet and did not take anything away from the stawberries. My husband was expecting a sponge cake so he did not appreciate it as much as I did. I ba...
