strawberry short cake
Not my cake as it got eaten!
I love big bulk stores, like Costco!
Now I have no pictures as the men (8 of them) descended an ate it before I could get pictures.
Huge 5 lbs of strawberries, hulled and rinsed.
3 loaves of butter pound cake.
3 cans whipping cream.
now I took my large sided non stick pan and placed the strawberries in it and put it on medium heat and had one of them watch and stir it.
*now my grandmother used white sugar and a masher to get the same effect*
it draws out the juices. I like heat, as I don't have to add any sugar, and the strawberries have a juice tart/natural sweetness that complements the sweet pound cake and the creamy whip cream.
so cook and mash them for 20 minutes. the smell will fill the house and draw all the hungries;)
take and cut the pound cake in to 1/4" slices. put 3 to 4 slices per bowl, add the HOT* strawberries and spoon 2 scoops over the cake and cover with whipping cream. serve immediately, refrigerate what you don't use. feeds nine hungry people.
*the strawberries will be HOT!
