Tried a new strawberry shortcake recipe. Tasted good but didn’t rise much. A few theories why:

  • I used too much buttermilk
  • I didn’t have a 3” cutter and sized up instead of down
  • I got a new baking sheet which is a different material
  • recipe should use more baking soda
  • should bake at 425 not 400
