Strawberry Shortcake

Happy Wednesday!

We were out working in the yard here & there over the last few days.  Brought out the patio furniture from storage...a sure sign that summer is right around the corner!  

Another sure sign, fresh strawberries!

I went a big grunge for this one, huh?   Found this old strawberry box label at Graphics Fairy, too fun!

Here's something a little fresher...

Homemade strawberry shortcake!

Let me just say, there was milk in this bowl.  By the time it took me to adjust the camera for the picture, the shortcake absorbed all the milk!  lol     This was my piece; hubby & kids put so many strawberries on theirs that you can't even see the cake!  And one child doesn't eat strawberries, just the cake!

Want this incredibly easy to make recipe?  


2 cups sugar
2 eggs
cream together sugar & eggs,
add one at a time-
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of salt
2 cup milk
Pour into cake pan.  Batter will be a bit thick!
Bake @ 350 for 30-35 minutes.

yum!  My oldest son usually bakes this & makes us 2 or 3 pans!!  
I hope you'll give it a try!

So glad you stopped by, enjoy your day!
