    This recipe is absolutely decadent! I’ve made it 2 times now, and the second time I divided the dough into eight smaller cakes instead of four large ones. The crispy edges are divine!! Absolutely recommend!

    Yummy, I used honey instead of sugar on the strawberries.

    A little too sweet for what I was looking for. I’ll use less sugar next time. There will definitely be a next time though!

    Made it in my KitchenAid artisan mixer with dough hook. it came out great but i should have doubled it!! LOL! IT WAS DELICIOUS.

    Really, really good. Very nice hint of sweet but not too much. No major substitutions. The only thing I did differently was subbed 25% of the sugar for brown sugar.

    it was great we improvised and made the shortcake smaller and we just carved the inside out and put the strawberries and strawberry sauce in it

    The metrics version states it is 188g, but actually, it is 234 g. The rest of the ingredients are spot on. I love fresh strawberries on shortcake. Living in Finland means loads of strawberries... every year. No fakie fakie sponge cake from the store for us... only the real deal. Yum.

    This turned out perfectly! I substituted the milk for cream and the texture and flavor was amazing!

    Yummy....I did use cream instead of milk though and I used Truvia instead of sugar, they were perfect. I used cream because I've made scones that use cream.

    So easy to make and they taste amazing! The shortcake was very sweet and everyone loved them. Be sure to double the recipe if you have a big family as this recipe only makes four servings.
