Season 1 - Episode 19
Part biscuit and part cake, shortcake is both casual and elegant and traditionally served split in half and filled and topped with fresh fruit and sweet cream. In this episode of Bake with Anna Olson Anna shares her favorite shortcake desserts featuring strawberries. She begins with the quintessential North American summer dessert, Classic Strawberry Shortcake, and then moves on to a more complex British version, Strawberries and Cream Cake. For a truly elaborate shortcake Anna prepares a French-inspired Fraisier Torte—perfect for a special occasion. And finally Anna combines all of the elements together in a new way to create Strawberry Shortcake Trifles.
