Strawberry picking was great fun this week. This is another great recipe we tried with our fresh berries. It was perfect with homemade whipped cream.
1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the butter and sugar with a spoon, beating well until the mixture is light and slightly fluffy. Add the buttermilk, eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix well until there aren’t any dry clumps remaining.
Grease a 9×9 spring cake pan and pour in the cake mixture. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Serve with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
Whipped cream is super easy to make on your own.
2 cups heavy cream
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Whip the cream until thickened. Sprinkle over the sugar and vanilla and gently fold in with a spatula. Put in the fridge until you are ready to use!
