As we have discussed previously, I am not a fan of scones, and shortcakes being close cousins of scones, I, therefore, only made a quarter of this recipe - two shortcakes. And then I fed one to dear Papa.
They look more rough and ready than they should as I divided the dough in two and patted each into a disc, rather than cutting out the shortcakes.
Although I probably wouldn't make these again, they were quite acceptable and the recipe worked well. I did like the crackly top from the milk and sugar.
240g Plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
120g cold unsalted butter, cubed
3 tbsp caster sugar (for sprinkling on top)
