Congresbury Ginger Shortcake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Wow! I just tried this recipe, and my roomie and I absolutely LOVED it. I did make a few adjustments, however. I substituted 2 tbsp of corn starch for some of the flour to make it fluffier and less staunch. I know it's a shortcake, but we were in the mood for more "cakey" cake. I also used the light Karo syrup instead of the golden because it's what was on hand, and added about 1/2 tsp cinnamon and cornstarch into the glaze to make it slightly reminiscent of pumpkin pie, and thicker. I used a loaf pan and adjusted the temperature to 375 for 23 mins and it came out divine. Thanks for the great recipe!

Tasty but recipe has issues. Either it needs more liquid to make it a "firm dough" Or it needs to be changed to something that specifies it is not a dough but more of a graham cracker crust consistency. It didn't form a dough at any point. Recipe is slightly misleading and that is annoying. Like I said good tasting shortcake though.

This is what shortcake should be! I love that little bit of ginger spark. Used this for strawberry shortcake. YUUUUUMY!

This shortcake is fabulous. Easy, quick, and delicious. I had to add about 2-3 Tablespoons of milk to mine before it was even close to a "firm dough", but I am not known to be a precise measurer, so that is most likely my fault. Regardless, it turned out beautifully. I served with fresh sliced strawberries in sour cream/brown sugar. Heavenly!

Far from being a shortcake, this was more like a cookie. The only reason why I give it three stars is the flavor was okay.
