I just felt like a Strawberry Shortcake, so I made a homemade pound cake topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
Be sure to continue reading for the recipe …
List of Ingredients:
2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter
1/2 Cup of Shortening
3 Cups of Sugar
5 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoons of Salt
1 Cup of Milk
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Flavor
2 Cups of Strawberries
The strawberries have been washed and sliced, then sprinkled with sugar.
Allow the strawberries to sit and marinate in order to render the delicious juices.
In a mixing bowl, add softened butter and shortening, be sure to mix them together. Then add sugar a little at a time while still mixing. Be sure to add your eggs to the mix one at a time, and be sure to continue mixing after each egg is added.
In a separate bowl, add flour, salt, baking powder, which are your dry ingredients. Stir these ingredients with a large spoon, and then add to your cake batter. Start adding some flour, a little at time, add your milk. Then begin to alternatively add your milk, flour, milk, and flour. Don’t forget to add your 1 teaspoon of vanilla flavor to your cake mixture.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and when your cake is well mixed, pour into a greased and floured pan. Your cake will cook for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until your toothpick comes out clean.
This is the cake fresh out of the oven.
This is the cake after it has been turned over onto a cake plate, to cool.
Once the cake has cooled, you can slice it and began to build your strawberry shortcake.
After you’ve finished building your scrumptious strawberry shortcake, all you need is big spoon! Hope Y’all Enjoy!
Remember ya’ll not everyone in the South eats fried chicken, but if you fry it just right. We won’t turn it down!
