Strawberry Shortcake

Shortcake is a sweet biscuit which ressembles very much like breads...shortcake is typically made with flour, sugar, baking powder, salt,butter, milk and sometimes with eggs... Shortcakes are prepared by adding the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until they turn moist as wet batter, the wet batter can be dropped with a spoonful of batter to a baking sheet or poured in a loaf pan and baked until they get baked...The most famous dessert made with shortcake is strawberry shortcake...Strawberry shortcakes are prepared usually with sliced strawberries mixed with sugar,whipped cream...My version of strawberry shortcake is really quite easiy and need very less time to prepare..i skipped the egg part and prepared this shortcake simply with flour,butter, milk and baking powder with sugar...Am sending this easy eggless Strawberry Shortcake to Happy Cook's Strawberry Feast...am sending this shortcakes to Madhuram's Low Fat Baking Event...



1cup All purpose flour
1tsp Baking powder
2tbsp Sugar
3tbsp Butter
1/2cup Milk
10nos Strawberries chunks
1tbsp Sugar
2tbsp Whipping cream

Add the sugar and strawberry chunks together and keep aside for few minutes..Whip the cream until it holds a soft peak..cover and refrigerate for few minutes...

Preheat the over to 425F..in a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and mix, add the small cubes of butter and mix until they turns as coarse meal...transfer the mixture to a large bowl and make a well, pour the milk..with a fork stir everything gently, dont stir for a long...grease a cake pan and flour it, pour the batter and bake of 10 minutes or until risen and golden brown...remove from the pan and slice the biscuit as u desire...arrange few strawberries and whipping cream as ur desire and serve it!!
