The Best Ever Shortcake
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening ( I have used butter as well but shortening seems to give the cake a bit more bounce)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2.Grease and set aside a shortcake pan (or large muffin pan)
3.Measure flour, salt, and baking powder into a small bowl and set aside.
4.Cream sugar, shortening, egg and vanilla. I use my kitchen aide
5. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix slowly.
6. Add milk slowly to batter. Combine until just smooth.
7. Spoon into greased pan and bake for 20-25 minutes
8. Cool and remove from pan.
9.Smother cake with fresh strawberries and real whipped cream…you made the effort with the cake, you might as well do the cream right!
