Strawberry Shortcake...

HOOORAY!!!! Strawberry season is here!!! And it's time to share a wonderful Strawberry Shortcake recipe that I recently made.

I'm sure lots of y'all follow Rhoda at Southern Hospitality.  She's gorgeous. She can make a home BEAUTIFUL.  She's just seems like such a sweetheart!!!  I love her blog but I LOVE her instagram!!  She shares of lots instastories and my favorites BY FAR are when she shares her weekly meals with her adorable parents.  Her dad seems like such gentleman. And her mom!! Oh the food that she puts on the table each week!!!

This recipe comes from Rhoda's mother!!!  She found it in Parade magazine from April 19, 2009.  Y'all, it is GOOD!!  The PERFECT cake for Strawberry Shortcake- tastes like a simple pound cake!!!!  The link is for the original recipe, but I listed below the way I made it.

Simple Loaf Cake

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup flavorless oil (I used light olive oil)

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, sour cream, vanilla, and oil.  Gently measure out on top of that the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Whisk together until it is smooth.  Pour into a prepared loaf pan (8x4x2). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then turn out on cooling rack to cool.

Once you're ready to serve....

Strawberry Shortcake

Prepared Loaf Cake (see above)
3 pints strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup sugar
Cool Whip, Redi Whip, or homemade sweetened whipped cream

In a small bowl, place strawberries and toss with sugar.  Let sit for an hour in the fridge.  

When ready to serve, slice the cake, top with strawberries, and a dollop of your choice of whipped cream.  So SO good!!

That seems so simple to make. I made a strawberry shortcake for school once that was a lot more involved. I like this way better:) #MMBC

I'm a "June baby" and growing up I never cared much for strawberry shortcake. But now 50 something years later, for some reason lately I have been craving strawberry shortcake! lol.

Thanks for sharing the recipe. :-)
