Strawberry shortcake

by - 9:01 AM

Strawberry season is only complete with strawberry shortcake.


Butter and sugar.


Cream together

 Add egg

 vanilla

and milk

beat well. Then Combine dry ingredients  to the creamed mixture.

I use the butter wrapper to grease the pan. My mother always did it that way. If you think that's being too frugal that's OK.

Pour into pan.


Spread in a greased 9-in baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.

Slice up some straw berries.

Add a little maple syrup to them.

Pull the cake out and let cool on a wire rack not a pot holder!

 Don't let bossy people tell you what to do.

Whip some cream

Add a few tablespoons of maple syrup as it starts to thicken.

This is the important part:
Split each serving horizontally and fill with whipped cream and strawberries. Replace top of cake; garnish with more berries and a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.
