Strawberry Shortcake

'Tis the season for strawberries, and one of our favorite ways to eat them is with shortcake. We recently tried out this recipe (click for original). It had a very light sweetness and was not as spongy as what we're used to, but it was worth making.

Strawberry Shortcake
2 c flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
1/3 c shortening
1 c milk
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients thoroughly.
  3. Add shortening, and cut in using pastry blender, forks, or knives until crumbly
  4. Add milk and mix until combined.
  5. Bake for about 25 minutes in greased pan (we used our bundt pan), or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
