This recipe is from a yellowed copy from an old newspaper clipping. My Mom & I love this in place of shortcake. I don't know why "butter" is in the title because there's only 1 tablespoon in the cake! Please try this quick, easy & delicious cake (and much tastier & more moist than shortcake!!!). I hope you like it.
1/4 t. salt
1 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/2 cup milk, boiling
1 T. butter
1 cup sifted flour
1 t. baking powder
Beat eggs until very light. Then beat in very well the salt, sugar & vanilla. Beat in milk which is boiling hot & which has been heated with the butter.
Sift flout & baking powder & beat into the the egg mixture. Por very quickly into a greased & floured 8" or 9" square pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
For yummy strawberry shortcake, cut & split slices of cake & serve with sweetened strawberries & whipped cream on top!
