VIDEO! Elizabeth Bakes Strawberry Shortcake

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 –
