Ingredients

Shortcake

  • 120 grams unsalted butter frozen
  • 80 grams caster sugar
  • 250 grams plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk scant
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/4 cup double cream scant

Strawberry Jam

  • 100 grams Strawberries
  • 100 grams Strawberry Jam
Metric - U S Customary

Instructions

  1. Put all the dry ingredients in a food processor and blitz until fine breadcrumbs. Whisk all the wet ingredients together in a jug.

  2. Pour in the wet ingredients into the food processor through the funnel whilst blitzing. Keep blitzing until the mixture starts to come together in clumps.

  3. Tip out onto a floured surface and knead a little to bring together into a disc. Roll out gently until  2 cm thick. Using a cutter about 7 cm in diameter cut out your discs. It is important not to twist the cutters. The mixture is very soft so be gentle and they will rise to the occasion.

  4. Brush with Cream and sprinkle with sugar before chilling in the refrigerator for twenty minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 200 C. Put the Jam and Strawberries in a saucepan over a gentle heat. I used a potato masher to bash the Strawberries a little and stirred until they were well combined. Set aside.

  6. Bake the shortcakes for ten to fifteen minutes. Keep a close eye on them so as to not let them brown too much especially on the bottom.

  7. Allow to cool on a wire rack for a little while before carefully splitting and spreading with Jam, Cream and fresh Strawberries. These babies should be served still warm.

  8. Apply to Deranged Face

Recipe Notes

These can be made ahead and gently reheated in the oven until warm.
