Our answer

Nigella's Strawberry Shortcakes (from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS) are American shortcakes, which are similar to scones. They are best on the day that they are made but can be frozen and refreshed in a warm oven. Let the shortcakes cool completely then freeze in airtight containers or resealable bags for up to 1 month.

To thaw the shortcakes, put them on a wire rack and leave at room temperature for about 1 hour. Warm the shortcakes in an oven preheated to 150℃/Fan 130℃/300°F for 5-10 minutes then split and serve them with the strawberries and cream.
