Our 100th post -Strawberry Short cake

Oh my god.. we cant believe we have finally hit this milestone.. Its been such a fun journey for both of us who started this blog space somewhere a year ago only because of our deep love connection with "Food". A big thank you to our dear families, friends and readers for their continuous encouragement that has brought this blog to where it is now. The best thing after the blog kicked off is that our amazing friendship has gotten endlessly deep along with all the exploring and expanding of our knowledge bank on so many new foods, cuisines and cooking techniques..

To celebrate all these joys, here's a big slice of the sweet n simple Strawberry Short Cake with lots of love from our kitchen to yours. This recipe brings out a really nice texture in the shortcake, not very biscuity nor very spongy, but a perfect balance between the two and when served with loads of strawberries and whipped cream, it makes it's way to the top of the desert charts.

With a hope to continue our efforts in creating n sharing more fun recipes, we send our heartfelt thanks to all our dear readers once again.

Prep Time: 30 mins

All purpose Flour: 1 1/3 cup
Sugar: 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons
Baking powder: 2 teaspoons
Shortening : 1/2 cup
Egg: 1bs
Vanilla Essence: 1 teaspoon
Milk: 1 cup
Strawberries: 10-15
Whipping cream /Cool whip: lots
Chocolate Sauce enough to drizzle

Slice the strawberries, sprinkle about 2 tablespoons sugar and keep aside. Sieve flour, add the baking powder and sugar to it and keep aside. Using a hand mixer, cut the shortening into the flour mix until it resembles coarse crumbles.
Now add the egg and the milk and beat until smooth. The batter will be little thickish. Grease a baking dish and scrape all of the batter into the greased dish. Bake at 375° F for about 30 mins or more until the center come out clean when poked with a knife.

When slightly cooled. Slice the shortcake. Layer it with the cool whip and strawberries and drizzle the remaining strawberry juice over the top. Make it more fancy with some chocolate too.

Bon Apetit!!
