Strawberry Shortcake ( but the frosting has to be real whipped cream, not the other stuff bakeries sometime use.

cheese cake ( denser, cream cheese kind)

Since shortcake is hard, i.e. basically a thick biscuit, I have often wondered about how this is eaten, i.e. sliced. Does it soften with the berries and cream?

British shortcake and American shortcake are not the same thing. Your 'biscuit' is our 'cookie'. Our shortcake is more like a cake, not a cookie.

Google 'strawberry shortcake dessert' and you'll see the difference.

In parts of the South, a sweet biscuit (American-style) is used to make strawberry shortcake.

I don't know how authentic it is, but strawberry shortcake is yummy made with leftover sponge cake or angel food cake.

I found this interesting page about the history of strawberry shortcake - and another fascinating website to spend my time on 🍰

It's sort of based on the English scones with strawberries and cream. It changed through the years when different ingredients, like baking soda, and technologies, like refrigeration, became available.

Oh yes, I was thinking earlier about the flourless chocolate cake with dark chocolate-cinnamon ganache we made last Christmas. So good.
