When strawberries get ripe in June I like to make this shortcake recipe.  It’s good with fruit and frozen yogourt or whipped cream. The cake is also great in a trifle recipe.



4 cups flour


1 tsp baking soda

2 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup sugar

1 cup shortening

2 cups sour milk


Mix flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a bowl.

Combine sugar and shortening in another bowl.

Mix wet ingredients into flour mixture .  Add sour milk and blend until a thick batter is formed.  Turn out into a greased cake pan.

Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

Cool.  Serve with chopped fruit and frozen yogourt.
