Great recipe (and easy enough for children to make)
I love shortcake and get so upset when eating out and being served Spongecake as a not-so-good replacement for shortcake. If I order shortcake...that`s what I want. If I order Spongecake..That`s a whole other type of thing. Your simple, right-to-the-point recipe is great. Thanks a lot!
