Strawberry ShortcakeHere is a real simple recipe for shortcake that is quick and easy to make. It soaks up the juice from the strawberries in a most delicious way. It’s a tasty cake even if you don’t have any fruit to add to it. Just dust it with a little powdered sugar and eat it plain and simple.

 

Aunt Sissy’s Strawberry Shortcake

 

1 ¼ cup all purpose flour

1/3 cup shortening

¾ cup sugar

½ cup milk

1tsp vanilla

½  tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

1 egg

 

Sift or stir together all the dry ingredients. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well. If you are using an electric mixer, beat on medium about 2 minutes. Pour into an 8 inch pan (square or round) that has been greased and floured. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool ten minutes on a rack before turning out of the pan.

 

Cut cake into serving sizes and top with fresh strawberries that have been washed, stemmed, sliced and sweetened with a bit of sugar.  A dollop of whipped cream on top seals the deal.
