Preparing the Fresh Strawberries

  • First, we’re going to wash our strawberries and cut them in half.
  • After the  strawberries have been washed and sliced, we’re going to  sprinkle them  with a little sugar.
  • Allow the strawberries to sit and marinate in their own delicious juices. The strawberries can sit in a bowl, while we make our homemade pound cake.

Baking the Homemade Poundcake

  • In a mixing bowl, add 2 sticks of softened unsalted butter and 1/2 cup of  shortening, be sure to mix them together. 
  • Then add 3 cups of 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. You’ll be adding a total of 5 eggs in all.
