Spring Forward Strawberry Shortcake


I sit here at the computer waiting for my shortcake to cool off so I can dig in. I love strawberry shortcake. My favorite is with Stilwell Strawberries but we are a little early for them yet so I will make do with California strawberries. I think this recipe is the bomb! Try this and you will be a happy you did! That is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.

Needed:
2 cups all purpose flour
4 t baking powder(I use Rumford)
1/2 cup oil(I use canola)
1 cup sugar 1/2 cup sugar for top of cake
1 T vanilla
1 1/2 cup milk

Sift flour and baking powder together into a large bowl and make a bowl in the middle, this is where you will add your sugar, milk, oil, and vanilla. Mix as you would pancake batter. I few lumps are fine. Now pour into a 9x13 baking pan and sprinkle a 1/2 cup of sugar on top. Bake at 350' until golden brown, this happens in about 30 minutes in my oven. Cool and serve with with strawberries and whipped cream!
