Individual shortcakes also make a lovely presentation. Both Chicago Metallic and Nordic Ware make charming 6 cavity pans or you can use six 10 ounce (4 by 2 inches) Pyrex dessert dishes set on a baking sheet. Prepare the pans as for the large cake. Make a half recipe of all of the components except the cake. For the cake, you will need a 2 egg recipe, so multiply everything by 0.4. Use about 1 ounce/33 grams of batter in each depression, and bake for 14 to 15 minutes. Don’t be concerned if the batter rises above the tops of the pans because it will go down quite a bit when fully baked and flatten on unmolding. The syrup will yield 6½ tablespoons.
