SHORTCAKE … just in time for summer entertaining!

Shortcakes ... just screaming for strawberries!

These are absolutely beautiful cakes.

Strawberry Shortcake with French Vanilla Whipped Cream

Strawberry Shortcake with French Vanilla Whipped Cream

SHORTCAKES  by Wolfgang Puck

I set out to find a new shortcake recipe and found myself cruising Foodnetwork.com.  Wolfgang Puck’s recipe stood out from all the others because it used plenty of butter and cream … and I could make it in the food processor!  (I am beginning to develop quite a relationship with my food processor.  So easy to throw all the ingredients in and give them a whirl.)

I was able to get 9 shortcakes (recipe said 10).   Leave plenty of room on the pan between each shortcake as they do raise and spread.  If they run together you lose the beautiful round shape.  Just prior to baking I brushed each cake top with cream and sprinkled with a clear,  larger sanding sugar.

To get the perfect soft shortcake, follow the recipe directions and split and warm just before serving.  I microwaved each one for about 10 seconds or so. 


** WARNING **WARNING **
DO NOT TURN YOUR BACK ON YOUR STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE & WALK AWAY!

The temptation to lick the whipped cream was just too strong!

The temptation was just too strong to ignore.

   TRUMAN JUST COULD NOT RESIST THE WHIPPED CREAM.

  1. The strawberry season gets over too soon in Mumbai. But I am thinking if I could sub peaches. Or plums! 🙂
