Strawberry Short cake(Egg less) and Strawberry Juice


Today i am going to share with you guys something special and it is nothing but "Strawberry Short cakes" ..Last post itself i told, i am going to learn the  art of  baking .ya my first experiment was this strawberry shortcake.It's a very simple one but the challenging part for me in this recipe was baking..You may think "Is it that difficult?" but i don't know whenever I tried baking some cakes or muffins one or the other problem will occur..so i gave up. But my fellow bloggers really inspired me and of course my husband too .
I got this recipe from Martha Stewart's cook book. It has a good collection of wonderful recipes. I felt this recipe is so easy and very good choice for a begginer like me. So I thought of doing this (also, I wanted to surprise my husband :)). ya really he loved the cake.
Here I am sharing one more recipe; that is a simple juice: Strawberry Juice. It was a Strawberry day for us..Anyway we really enjoyed having the cake and juice ..hope u guys will also try it.Enjoy the great art of cooking..
