You’ll love how this shortcake soaks up the strawberry syrup. Shortcake is different than spongecake. This is entirely more rich and buttery. The tasty butter shortens the gluten strand formation, giving a buttery cookie-like texture. My son loves, loves, loves this dessert. VIDEO! Elizabeth Bakes Strawberry Shortcake –
