How to make Strawberry Shortcake...

  1. For the cake , preheat the oven at 350° F (180°c). Grease the pan and set aside .
  2. Sift together the flour , cornstarch , baking soda and salt .
  3. Cream the butter and the 1 1/2 cups sugar with the help of a hand blender till light and fluffy . Add the eggs one at a time , ensuring each addition to be well mixed in.
  4. Add the sour cream and the vanilla and mix until combined .
  5. Add the dry ingredients and mix till no lumps are seen .
  6. Bake the cake for about 45 - 50 mins . Remove the cake immediately and place on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely .
  7. Stem and halve the strawberries and mash them . Sprinkle the remaining 2 tbsp sugar over them and allow to sit for 30 mins.
  8. For the icing , combine the powdered sugar , cream cheese , vanilla , butter and dadh of salt in a bowl . Mix until very fluffy .
  9. Slice the cakes in half to make two smaller cakes . Spread the strawberries evenly over each cut sides of the cake halves , pouring on the juices as well .
  10. Place the cakes in the freezer just for 5 mins , just to make icing easier .
  11. Remove the cake halves . Use a little less than one third of the icing and to spread on top of the strawberries in the bottom layer .
  12. Add half of the remaining icing on the top , spreading evenly .
  13. Leave plain or garnish with strawberry halves .

My Tip:

I used a rectangle baking dish instead of a round one . So it turned out to be a square shaped cake layered cake . Everything else is the same . This cake is so moist and tastes amazing with that icing . The shortcake is either a biscuit or cake , topped with strawberries and it's juice and rich , cream cheese icing .
