Nirvana Ayurvedic Strawberry Shortcake
The cake is made as if you are going to make biscuits, which is very easy with self raising flour.
As soon as you take the biscuits out of the oven, cut them open
When you are ready for dessert, place a generous amount of strawberries in the middle of the biscuits and on top of them, adding plenty of the juice onto the biscuit. Top with whipped cream, either the real kind or a nut cream of your choice. If my mother's generation were doing it, they would use more butter and sugar, but todays generation prefer less calories and they are just as delicious. Add plenty of strawberries so that you don't skrimp on the berries and juice when you make them up to serve.
