Strawberry Shortcake

 

Strawberry Shortcake is popular dessert in my family. I’m not  a fan of those sponge cake cups you find in the produce so I get my strawberry dessert fix in other ways. This recipe changes that – instead of using the store bought cups or a pound cake I used  Irish Tea Cake as the base. The cake is just sweet enough to not outshine the berries and is more moist than pound cake.

Strawberry Shortcake

Ingredients:

  • 1 Irish Tea Cake
  • 1 pound of strawberries washed, hulled, and sliced
  • 2-4 tablespoons sugar
  • Sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping

Directions:

Mix the strawberries and sugar. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. When ready to serve top slices of tea cake with strawberries and syrup and dollop with sweetened whipped cream.
