Apple Shortcake is a soft and buttery, flaky shortcake base and topping with a cinnamon apple filling that is perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert! Apple shortcake is an old fashioned classic recipe that should definitely have a place in your baking repertoire.
Because I’m me, I had to tweak the apple shortcake recipe. (I really can’t help myself). A lot of the recipes I have seen for apple shortcake use just regular sugar so I added a touch of icing sugar for added sweetness and to give the shortcake a slight melt-in-the-mouth feel from the cornflour in the icing sugar. Not so much that it turns into more of a shortbread but just enough to melt in the mouth while still being light, soft and flaky.
