What is a shortcake?

A shortcake is a light and sweet cake typically made with flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and baking powder. Shortcakes are often flavoured with vanilla or lemon and served with fruit or whipped cream.

This gluten-free version is made with almond flour, coconut flour and a gluten-free flour blend. For the fats, I replaced the butter with olive oil, and I used a flax egg to replace the eggs.
