strawberry shortcake

actually , if we are talking about strawberry shortcake then we are talking about scones and strawberry. as always , im gonna make it simple for you :)
oh and a few things to keep in mind when making scones ; always have the butter cold , add the liquid to the dry ingredients all at once and mix everything together quickly and lightly. 

  • 250 gr fresh strawberries 
  • 280 grams all-purpose flour 
  • 50 grams granulated sugar 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 76 grams cold unsalted butter 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 120 ml milk 
  • 100 gr whipped heavy cream 
  • 200 gr cold water 

  1. Slice the strawberries and toss them with 1/2 cup of white sugar. put in the refrigerator. Set aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter . The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. Whisk together the egg,milk and vanilla extract then add to the flour mixture, mixing just until the dough comes together. Do not over mix the dough. (its the same method to make pie crust) 
  3. knead the dough . 
  4. roll the dough and put it to the prepared pan . 
  5. Bake at preheated oven until golden brown. let it cool 
  6. Slice partially cooled cake in half, making two layers. Place half of the strawberries on one layer and top with the other layer. Top with remaining strawberries and cover with the whipped cream. 
  7. well, you know how to make whip cream ,right? its on my recipes lol at this point you should know how to make it . but since im such an angel .im gonna repeat it for u , in a large bowl put the whip cream and cold water and just stir it at the highest speed at ur electric mixer for 5 minutes. there you go ,you have whipped cream :)
