Short cake recipe has many variations.This one is a very quick ,delicious method, tried and tested and the results were great.Sharing this wonderful recipe here.

For the short cake
Baking powder-1tbsp
Butter-80 g

Crush the strawberries with fingers and add in the sugar.Keep this refrigerated for 30 minutes-1 hr.

Method of preparation
Mix all dry ingredients for the cake.
Cut  the butter into the dry flour mixture and mix with fingers until the mixture is coarse.
Pour in the buttermilk little by little and make a thick batter.(Thicker than usual cake batter)
Now bake for 30-40 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 degrees or until the top turns golden brown.
Cool the cake well.

Beat the cream,icing sugar and vanilla until you get fluffy peaks.
Cut the cake horizontally with a serrated knife into 2 or 3 layers.I made 2 cakes at a time,using the same batter above.
Add one layer of crushed strawberry filling on the cake layer.Then whipped cream,now,close this with another layer of cake.Repeat the layering process.You can serve this chilled topped with whipped cream.
But,I have coated the whole cake with whipped cream.

why do we need baking powder as one table spoon ? does it has side effect if we add that much of quantity .
I used 1 tbsp=3tsp ;There are 2 reasons for this--1. Since i used 2 cups of plain flour;almost 250g.(More flour,more baking powder.)
2. Since this is Eggless recipe.
Therez not much side effect for baking powder-unless u are consuming daily--and try to use good quality baking powder only-Thanks for the comment!!
Enjoy Baking..
