Step By Step Instructions To Make Hennessy Cake

Step 1

Cut in the fat after combining the dry ingredients. Mix dry ingredients until they resemble coarse cornmeal. Pour wet ingredients into a measuring cup measuring ¼  cup (spray with cooking spray or rub oil inside to prevent sticking) and drop onto the baking sheet. Once golden brown, place shortcakes in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

Step 2

Strawberries, Hennessy, and brown sugar will ferment for 10 minutes in a pot. Add other ingredients, turn heat to medium, and simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Then add the cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and Hennessy to the bowl. Using a medium-high speed, beat for 3 minutes.

Step 4

To assemble, cut shortcakes in half, then spoon strawberry preserve over the bottom biscuit. Top the biscuit with more whipped cream and a dollop of whipped cream, then top with the top half of the biscuit.
