This streamlined version of an American classic makes an impressive summer dessert or centrepiece for a special tea table. Based on a quick, light scone mixture and filled with Greek-style yogurt, whipped cream and lots of juicy fresh strawberries, it is easy to make and simply irresistible.

This is a cake with a scone-like texture that is fail-safe and delicious. I have given so many people this recipe - substitute any fruits for the apple and if you don't have time to pre-cook it - just slice it finely and then add a little more sugar if it is a "tart" fruit (rhubarb, granny smith apples, some types of stone fruits). Quick, easy, and foolproof! Great to bake in the oven whilst the main course is cooking.

This shortcake recipe is a little like stuffing a plain scone with strawberries. Handle the dough as little as possible to ensure a light shortcake. Add a dollop of lightly whipped cream for the ultimate indulgence.

This is a great cake to make when strawberries are in-season. It consists of two scone-like layers, topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. It's great for birthdays and everyday enjoyment.

This is a lovely low sugar cake recipe, topped with fresh strawberries and thick Greek yoghurt. You could use any other berry with great success! Strawberry shortcake is an American classic, and the cakes resemble scones.

Shortcakes are a little like plain scones. These shortcakes are fragranced with lemon zest, then served with fresh strawberries, lemon butter and whipped cream. Perfect for afternoon tea, a snack or for dessert.

Instead of the normal strawberry shortcake, I like to make use of other summer fruits when available. Use your favourite selection of fruit.

Elegant, simple and delicious. Buttery shortcakes are sandwiched together with a rose-scented cream and fresh raspberries. Enjoy as a decadent dessert.
