"Wow!" is what people say when I set this dessert on the table. It's fun to serve since it's attractive, not overly sweet and bursting with the wondrous flavor of field-fresh strawberries.

For a dazzling summer dessert, you can’t beat juicy strawberries and fresh whipped cream over homemade shortcake. “My father added even more indulgence to this recipe by buttering the shortcake," notes Shirley Joan Helfenbein of Lapeer, Michigan.
"I recently made this moist chocolate cake for my sister and her husband," shares Jennifer Bangerter of Warrensburg, Missouri. "I've never seen cake disappear so quickly! It's great with or without the pretty strawberry sauce."
"If you have patience and strong hands, ready for kneading, I suggest making the fondant yourself." Whether you use store bought or homemade, this artistic cake will get rave reviews.

WHEN I married in 1946, my sister-in-law was a big help in sharing her recipes and cooking expertise and I aspired to be as good a cook as she was. Many of her recipes are still our favorites. Although I've tried a few other recipes for strawberry shortcake over the years, I always come back to this one.
