Strawberry Shortcake

     I don’t know about you all, but one of my favorite parts about summer is the strawberries.  Of course, I’m in luck because my family has a strawberry patch out behind our house.  Because we get so many strawberries, we have strawberries and ice cream, strawberry jam, chocolate covered strawberries, and lots of other things, but our favorite is strawberry shortcake.  And not just regular old pound cake or whatever you may use, but a family recipe.  In my opinion, it’s the best there is, but I’ll let you try it for yourselves.

This recipe makes approximately 8-10 servings.

 You Will Need:
5 Tablespoons of Butter
¾ Cup of Sugar
2 Eggs
2 ¼ Cup of Flour
2 Tablespoons of Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
¾ Cup of Milk
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
2 Quarts of Strawberries
Vanilla Ice Cream

1. Preheat your oven to 350°
2. Cream together butter and sugar.
3. Add eggs to butter and sugar.
4. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together.
5. Alternately add dry mixture (the flour, baking powder, 
and salt) and milk/vanilla to the butter and sugar.
6. Bake in a 9 inch round cake pan for 20 minutes.
7. Serve with a generous helping of strawberries and ice cream.
8. Enjoy!
