According to wiki, Shortcakes are crumbly bread that is leavened by baking powder. Not only do they differ in size to regular cakes, but their method of preparation resembles like that of an bread/muffins. The liquid ingredients used to moisten the dry ingredients are milk/cream, resulting in crumbly-textured dough, which is shaped as desired and baked. The baked ones are then, garnished with whipped cream along with fruit & fruit juices.
So, when such gorgeous short-cakes were, suggested as this month's Baking partners challenge, I could hardly resist myself from trying them. All thanks to Reeni and Swathi Iyer, for this awesome challenge. I made this, and my family relished whole-heartedly.
