CORRECTED VERSION. Apologies to those who make the baking soda version *Teddy*.
Do not buy those crappy yellow sponge cakes from the supermarket. Instead, make these.
first slice up fresh local strawberries in season
and have some whipped cream ready …
2 c flour
4 t baking powder
1 t salt
1-2 T sugar
5 T butter
Preheat oven to 400° and butter a cake pan or small cookie sheet. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in the butter with a fork or pastry blender until it resembles course meal. Add milk slowly until the dough just comes together to form a ball. Knead on a floured surface for a minute, then roll the dough into a rough circle about 3/4 inch thick and place in the pan. Before baking “cut” into 8 pieces with a fork by poking holes close together bisecting the circle in a 4 lines – like cutting a pie. Bake 12 minutes, or until nicely lightly browned.
Serve warm (not hot) piled with lots of strawberries and whipped cream.
