Strawberry Shortcake




I know, I know it is only February but Sam's club had a great deal on strawberries and we just couldn't resist. It some how gave me hope that Spring is somewhere near. But I am not holding my breath. My cute boys were so happy to be making the pound cake while I made dinner, Wyatt was the official taster, like always. This is a really good Pound Cake recipe from Paula Dean .

Strawberry Shortcake

Cake
1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter
3 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups all-purpose flour
6 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the sour cream and mix until incorporated. Sift the baking soda and flour together. Add to the creamed mixture alternating with eggs, beating each egg 1 at a time. Add the vanilla and pour the mixture into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes.

Topping
Sliced fresh strawberries
sugar
vanilla
Fresh whipped cream

Put sugar and vanilla on strawberries and mix. Let them sit in the frig for about 1 hour, this brings out some of the juice. Top cake with strawberries and whipped cream.
