This is a great recipe. I do cut sugar to 3/4 cup, add juice of lemon and zest. and double baking powder to 1 teaspoon. More of a pound cake not a shortcake. Excellent with sliced strawberries.

This is an excellent lemon butter shortcake,as in, pound cake. I increase the baking powder to 1 teaspoon and use the juice of a lemon and grated peel. It is my "go to" recipe for all berry shortcakes. Try it, you won't be disappointed!
