Old-Fashioned Short Cake With Strawberries

Simple and quick to make,this recipe produces a stunning and elegant two-tier dessert with a minimum of effort. And it is oh so satisfying - somewhere between a homemade cake and a biscuit. It holds up beautifully under the juicy strawberries without becoming grainy, like sponge cake, or overly soggy. The shortnin' part of its name comes from the process of cutting the fat into the flour to make a "short" dough, but this recipe uses butter.
