My husband baked up an incredible shortcake, with a great fluffy texture that is not too sweet. We bought some plump, juicy strawberries from the farmers’ market, and he marinated them in a bit of sugar and wine to make them even more delectable. We served this wine-soaked shortcake with some fresh whipped cream and a sprig of fresh mint.
