Nanny Fran's Strawberry Shortcake (recipe)


Nanny Fran’s Strawberry Shortcake

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 4 Tablespoons sugar

1 to 2 quarts fresh strawberries stemmed and mashed, then sprinkle with brown sugar. I also add 3 Tablespoons of water and the juice of 1/2 lemon to mashed strawberries

Real heavy whipping cream, whipped loose with a splash of white sugar to taste, I don’t like mine real sweet for this recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream sugar and shortening in medium size mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients & mix well. Pour batter into two greased 8 inch baking pans. Sprinkle the top of batter in each pan with 1 to 2 Tablespoons of sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Delicious served warm with mashed strawberries and whipped cream. Awesome with ice cream too!
