I almost titled this post "finally" because it feels like we've been waiting for strawberries for ages with worries that the excessive rain was rotting them, but here they are, only a few days later than last year.
We had our first strawberry shortcake on Tuesday, by which I mean strawberries, whipped cream, and some kind of cake-ish thing. When I grew up, it was "cottage pudding" from Mennonite Community which was really a short cake. I sometimes make Carla's Hot Milk Sponge Cake from More with Less, but here it was dessert biscuit following Rebecca's instructions.
To my whole wheat biscuit recipe, I add an egg and a little sugar. I pat it into an 8x8 pan and bake it about 10 minutes longer. Cut into squares, break open, top with lightly sugared, sliced strawberries and freshly whipped cream.
