“This is a fabulous old fashioned recipe given to me by a friend. It was her mother's recipe and it is the best shortcake. It sops up all the juice and the touch of nutmeg sends it over the top. My very favorite recipe for strawberry shortcake!”

Original recipe yields 1 8-inch cake

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch baking pan.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg and milk in another bowl; stir into flour mixture until batter is just blended. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Good flavor! I omitted the nutmeg and I added 1 tsp of REAL vanilla. Note: the baking time/temp needs adjusted. I'd suggest lowering temp to 350 and baking longer. I followed the recipe (450/15) and it was really dark on the outside but the middle was still gooey.

Exactly what I was looking for! This is an easy-to-make, tasty shortcake recipe! I followed the recipe exactly as it was stated, only change is that I added a 1/4 tsp. cinnamon & baked it at 350 (mainly because our oven over bakes too easily at higher temps). I will make this again!

I made this according to the recipe. It was wonderful. Softer than I expected, but it was great paired with the strawberries.
