Just look at it... sitting there... so pretty...and dramatic.
I think it needs a friend. (Me)
To make this super simple shortcake:
- 2 C flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 Tbl sugar
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 C. heavy cream
Preheat oven to 400*. Mix the first five ingredients together. Add the cream and mix together with a fork.
At this point, you can either 1) drop in clumps on a baking sheet, 2) press into a 8x8 cake pan, or 3) find an awesome thrifted ceramic muffin pan and fill the holes with dollops about 3/4 full. As with any ceramic bakeware, place it in the oven so it can warm up while preheating.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, till they bounce back when you tap the top.
