This classic recipe is always a hit with kids (and adults!) of all ages. Serve up this delicious dessert at your next backyard barbecue or picnic.


2/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup shortening

1 large egg, room temp

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flower

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup whole milk

1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

1-1/2 quarts of fresh or frozen strawberries, sliced


Cut your strawberries by twisting and pulling off the green stem of the berry. Then place the berry stem side down on a cutting board; cut into ¼-inch slices.

In a bowl, cream sugar and shortening. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Combine dry ingredients and add alternately with milk to the creamed mixture. Spread in a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Cut into nine servings. Split each serving horizontally and fill with whipped cream and strawberries. Replace top of the cake; garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and more berries. Serve immediately.
