Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Gently stir strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl; chill.
  3. Combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl; cut in butter with a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk milk and egg yolks in a bowl, then stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Divide in half and pat into prepared cake pans.
  4. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large bowl. Continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites should form a sharp peak that holds its shape. Spread over dough; sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack; cool completely.
  6. Place one cake layer on a large serving plate; spread with half the whipped cream, spoon half the strawberries over cream. Repeat layers; garnish with mint.

This was the most delicious Strawberry Shortcake I have ever made. My 54 year old son requested strawberry for Valentine's dinner. I supprised him with this recipe. Being a home cook chef, he gave it high ratings. The cake was crispy yet tender. It lent itself to the juices of the strawberries. I made chocolate covered strawberries dipped in finely chopped pecans and decorated the top of the cake with them. Of course I had whipped on the top for a bed for them. The center was uncovered to show the strawberries. I will use this cake recipies for all my fruit shortcakes.
