  1. Slice the strawberries and toss them with 1/2 cup of white sugar. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease and flour one 8 inch round cake pan.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons white sugar and the salt. With a pastry blender cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add the beaten egg and milk. Stir until just combined.
  4. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool partially in pan on wire rack.
  5. Slice partially cooled cake in half, making two layers. Place half of the strawberries on one layer and top with the other layer. Top with remaining strawberries and cover with the whipped cream.

This was AMAZING!! I did deviate somewhat from the recipe though. I took the advice of some other reviews and used 1/4 c. sugar in the batter, used 1/2 c butter instead of the shortening, adde...

Out of this world! I made this for my wife's birthday and it was a huge hit. I cut the baking power to 2 tsp like other folks, and upped the shortening to 1/2 cup, as I wasn't getting the "cou...

Best ever Strawberry shortcake Recipe!!! I used 2T instead of 4T of baking powder, 1/4cup sugar instead of just 2 spoons of sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I still can't make it uncr...

Excellent! I made mine in muffin top tins for individual shortcakes.

This is very delicious! The cake is like a sweet biscuit, but that's how old fashioned is! It's got such a "soft" taste - not overpowering! I will be making this over and over and over. My b...
