A short cake is a sweet biscuit.
Hubby thinks short cake is yellow cake.... ummm, no. I have made you Strawberry Yellow cake as short cake but I am putting my foot down.
I want traditional short cake, okay, crying fit over... I am baking traditional short cake. If I cover it with enough peaches and whipped cream, I am sure he will love it.
Start with 4 cups of bisquick, 1/2 c. sugar, 2 T melted butter, 1 1/2 t. of almond flavoring and 1 1/2 c. of milk. Pour into twelve greased muffin tins.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until done. Cool and pop out of the muffin pans.
Peel, core and slice 6 peaches. Sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown.
Stir in 1 1/2 c. of sugar. Taste for sweetness. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Next, whip 2 c. of heavy cream and 1/2 c. of sugar, I use confectionery sugar until it develops into soft peaks.
Split the biscuit in half, spoon peaches over bottom half of biscuit. Top with the top half of biscuit and a spoonful of whipped cream.
Lovely....... And delicious. The almond extract adds a wonderful flavor to the shortcake and combined with the peaches, it is perfection. Very easy to make for a summer dessert.
