When I was growing up, Mom sometimes experimented with different dessert recipes, but this tried-and-true spongy shortcake was always great just the way it was. It melted in my mouth!

There are plenty of strawberry patches near my hometown, and soon they'll be brimming with red berries. I discovered this recipe a few summers ago and have made it often. Believe me, it tastes as good as it looks!
Back when we lived on our farm, I made this recipe often during corn-shelling time. The corn shellers were good eaters, and filling those men up sure kept me busy! This light, cool dessert was always a tremendous way to top off a big hot meal.
"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."
