I always like to try new recipes.I haven't ever had a shortcake like this.I did add a little extra sugar to the batter.It was an ok recipe but I will probably go back to my pound cake or angel food cake. I probably won't make this again.

I wouldn't call this a shortcake. It was more like a biscuit. Not what I want with my strawberries.

This is awesome! I just substituted the whipped cream with ice cream to suit my taste better. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

Strawberry shortcake is a favorite summer time dessert. I loved the idea of baking the shortcakes in a muffin pan. I added 2 more tbsp. of sugar to my shortcakes because I like them a little bit sweeter. Overall a great dessert and very easy to make.
