Happy Monday! I hope that you all enjoyed a nice Easter yesterday. I spent a wonderful day with family and good friends - who could ask for anything more? We started our day long before the sunrise with a trip to the top of Stone Mountain. (We missed the sunrise service but the view from the top of the mountain was spectacular.)
Yesterday was an extra special day because it was Easter and it was my dad's birthday. We celebrated the occasion with a special strawberry shortcake for dessert. I had been dreaming about shortcake ever since my trip to the strawberry farm last week. The recipe is simple: great strawberries, fresh whipped cream and a simple shortcake.
6 cups sliced strawberries ½ cup butter
½ cup sugar 1 egg
2 cups flour 2/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder whipped cream
Bake 15-18 minutes at 450. Cool 10 minutes.
Remove from pan. Slice cake into 2 layers, horizontally. Layer ½ of strawberries on top of cake and top with whipped cream. Repeat.
I made the shortcake on Saturday so yesterday I sliced the berries, whipped the cream and assembled the cake. In the words of my daughter "it was REALLY good." I have to agree with her evaluation - it definitely did not disappoint. Sometimes the simplest desserts are the best.
