I was searching for a good strawberry shortcake recipe. Unfortunately this isn't it. I followed the advice of some reviews and changed it, did 1/2 cup butter, 2 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 cup sugar instead of 2 tbsp white sugar. Well it definatley came out biscuity, and hard, it reminded me of a frisbee as I was taking it out of the cake pan. And the cake tasted way too bland, my boyfriend even commented, it needs more sugar. More sugar?! The recipe only called for 2 tablespoons. I really am searching for more of a sponge cake like recipe, something my grandpa used to make and unfortunatley she passed well before I was eager to learn how to bake, so I missed out. And my mother never did strawberry shortcake the way my grandma did so....oh well, still on the hunt for a great shortcake recipe.
