Recipe - Swedish Shortcake

Ingredients:

150g of butter.
2dl of milk.
2dl sugar.*
2 large eggs.
3dl wheat flour.
1.5tsp baking soda.
2tsp vanilla sugar.
Optional flavorings:
3 table spoons of orange peels (roughly 2 large oranges worth of peel) and 2tsp of lemon juice.
Or:
5 table spoons of cocoa.
*or 1.5dl sugar substitute, 0.5dl sugar for a more 'diabetic friendly' cake. Note that this cake will be denser and less fluffy than a regular shortcake.

What to do:
1: Set your oven to 175 degrees Celcius
2: Melt the butter in a pan and pour in the milk, let the milk get lukewarm.
3: Use a bbq brush, cooking spray or similar to oil the mould that you'll be using with cooking oil or melted butter, and bread the mould.
4: Mix the eggs and sugar (or sugar substitute) in a bowl and whisk it until it's fluffed up (around 3-7 minutes).
5: Pour in the butter/milk mix, and mix it in.
6: Add the rest of the dry ingredients and whisk it for another 2 minutes.
7: Add optional flavorings. Stir/whisk them in.
8: Pour the mixture into your mould and put into the preheated oven for about 40 minutes.
9: Let it cool of slightly, and enjoy a tasty slice of Shortcake.
