I got this recipe from the wife of a co-worker. It's a very simple cake, buttery & not too sweet -- perfect with seasonal fruit & whipped topping or ice cream.


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees; grease a 9x9 dish & set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cut flour, sugar & butter together until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside 1/2 cup of this mixture.
  3. To the remaining butter mixture, add the rest of the ingredients & mix well.
  4. Pour into prepared dish & sprinkle topping over.
  5. Bake 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. Note #1: The edges of the cake may turn a light golden brown while baking, but the topping should not brown.
  7. Note #2: Double the ingredients to make a larger (9x13) cake.

Great texture, but really salty. I would probably halve the salt. Other than that it was quite nice, though.

Tonight, I had a craving for strawberry shortcake so I decided to try this recipe. This was an excellent and very easy recipe! I had everything on hand and was surprised that egg was not one of the ingredients listed. I will be making this shortcake again, however, I will use less salt. I thought it was a little too salty for me. I'm not a salt fan...Overall, great recipe. Thanks.

This recipe made great muffins! I would half the salt though, it almost ruined it! I topped the muffins with chocolate gravy!
