Cardamom Shortcake With Maple Berries


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup milk

3 cups sliced Strawberries

3 cups Blueberries

1 cup maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Put the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, baking powder, cardamom, and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix it with a wooden spoon. Add 1 cup of the heavy cream and turn it over with spoon, then slowly add milk until a dough forms. Less work on the dough is better for a soft and light cake. Put the dough onto a lightly greased 9 inch round cake pan. Sprinkle on the 2 tbs of sugar for a sparkly look. Place the pan into the top half of the oven and bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until the cake is golden and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and let cool. While the cake is baking, put the Strawberries, Blueberries and maple syrup in a bowl and let it sit. Cut the cake into 6 wedges. Slice each wedge in half and place the bottom halves on a platter. Divide the berries among the 6 cake bottoms. Top with the shortcake tops and garnish with whipped cream. Enjoy!
