Necessity is the mother of invention. I had no steamer so I put the cake pan on an inverted pie plate in my electric frying pan, filled the pan with water (not quite touching the cake pan), and cooked it for 25 minutes at 325F. Perfect! This cake is so sweet that I would prefer less sugar in the whipped cream, and more than 1 cup of cream.


I'm giving this recipe 5 stars for two reasons. A 5 for ease. And, a 5 for yummy-ness! After reading the reviews, I decided to use my electric skillet instead of trying to convert to the baking method. It worked wonderfully. I'm posting a picture of the cooking method, not the the finished product, because i think this is a recipe worth making and cooks should not pass on this recipe or be intimidated to try the ELECTRIC Skillet method. This Shortcake recipe is a WINNER!!! I've made it 3 times now and it has been eaten gone each time. I will NEVER buy those little grocery store shortcakes again!


I Love It!!
