Almond Shortcake

I’ve been playing with this recipe for a week and I am still not tired of it. This delicious shortcake is really easy to make – which is what I’m all about!

Chop 2 cups of strawberries, add 2 tbsp of date sugar and mix well. Let sit for about 1 hour. This allows the sugar and strawberries macerate, and the berries will become soft.

In your blender bowl, add King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour, salt, baking powder, and date sugarMix until blended, making sure the date sugar isn’t chunky.

Add the egg, milk, oil, and almond extract to the bowl and blend into the flour mixture. Grease a muffin pan and add the mixture to the muffin tin filling about halfway. Yield: approximately 9 shortcakes.

Bake in the oven at 375 for 16-18 minutes. Check for doneness after 16 minutes.

Top with my dairy-free whipped cream and strawberries. Your guests will be very impressed and don’t tell them its a gluten and dairy-free dessert!

Try blueberries for another fun topping. In a saucepan heat 1 cup of frozen blueberries and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Let simmer until warm then add to your shortcake with whipped cream.
