Chef John's Classic Strawberry Shortcake
For this strawberry shortcake recipe, I modified the way my grandfather made his and used self-rising flour and toasted butter for a nutty flavor. I'm hoping Armand Cianfoni would approve.
This recipe makes 6 large or 8 normal strawberry shortcakes.
You can make your own self-rising flour by sifting together 2 cups of all-purpose flour with 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon fine salt.
