Easy Strawberry Short Cake Recipe
What is a shortcake ?
Shortcake is typically made with flour, sugar, baking powder or soda, salt, butter,milk or cream, and sometimes eggs. The dry ingredients are blended, and then the butter is cut in until the mixture resembles cornmeal.
Is British in Origin:
The large amount of butter is what makes shortbread short: the term short, when applied to biscuits and pastry, means crumbly, like shortcrust pastry should be. It is the reason why the fat added to biscuits and pastries is called shortening. :Lisa
