How to make Strawberry Shortcake
The first step is to prepare the cake for this dish. In a bowl, mix the sugar and the shortening. Then add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat it well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Keep mixing it. Also keep adding the milk to this mixture alternately. Pour the mixture in a baking pan, and pop it in a preheated 180°C preheated oven for about 25 minutes.
Once the cake is done, let it cool. Then cut the cake into 5 circles using a cookie cutter. Split each circle from the middle.
Now, put the whipped cream and strawberry slices between the two slices of a circle. Garnish with a dollop of cream and strawberries.
