Strawberry Short Cake

A anytime tasty summer time favorite we enjoyed
all summer at Mom's and church.

For years, Mrs. Maude Simms was in charge
of food at Olivet's annual Strawberry Festival.
Her special strawberry short cake was a lure
that brought visitors back faithfully each year.

3 cups flour 1 cup butter
2 cups sugar Sweetened crushed strawberries
1 1/2 cups milk Whipped cream
3 eggs, beaten Vanilla ice cream
5 level teaspoons baking powder

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Melt butter and add with milk
and beaten eggs to dry ingedients.
Mix thoroughly. Beat for about two minutes.

Pour batter into long shallow pan and bake
at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.

When the cake is cool, slice in half lengthwise.
Place layer of ice cream over bottom slice and
cover with crushed strawberries.
Add top layer, cover with strawberries and top with
whipped cream.

This recipe, which serves 18, can be halved for family use.

And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.
