Strawberry Shortcake Recipe from Shabby Shack!

Strawberry Shortcake

1 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick butter
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
whipped cream
 
In a large mixing bowl whisk together, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Cut in butter until like coarse crumbs. Add milk, eggs and vanilla and stir with a spoon until all ingredients are wet. Grease a round 9 inch cake pan or 9 x 9 inch square pan.   Pour batter into baking dish and bake in preheated 375 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes.  Let cool about 10 minutes. Remove from pan to a plate.  You can slice individual pieces in half and add strawberries.  I like to top with additional strawberries!   Optional:  Add a dollop of whipped cream.  8 to 10 servings.

Happy Memorial Day from Shabby Shack!

Happy Memorial Day!

Remember, it’s not about barbeque and/or a day off work.

It’s about our servicemen and women who keep us safe.

I honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and my heart aches for their families.

God bless America!

K

P.S.

This is an unprecedented time in our nation’s history. The American people are outraged by the display of unconstitutional, corrupt, immoral, and criminal actions by President Barack Obama and his Administration. We, the people, demand justice. We, the people, demand that the U.S. House of Representatives begin impeachment proceedings against Barack Hussein Obama.

Before you come to Shabby Shack’s garage sale (and others on your list), here are a few tips:

Set a budget of what you plan to spend so you won’t overdo.  And, bring one-dollar bills.  It makes buying those little items that much easier.

Before buying an object, think of three different ways you’ll be able to use it so you’re not buying items that later will become clutter.

Carefully inspect each item.  Sometimes dings are covered up by price tags at other other garage sales.  (I inspect all items in Shabby Shack and at my garage sales.  I only sell “quality” goods, but not everyone is like me.)

Be sure to take a small tape measure.  You don’t want to haul big objects home and find that they won’t fit.

It’s always a good idea to be friendly.  You never know why people are selling their possessions.   They may be moving, going through a divorce or clearing out a deceased loved one’s home.  ( I just happen to LOVE good junk and I am a junk junkie to the core.)

MOST OF ALL, make sure to have fun!
