Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

4 eggs

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1 quart strawberries

1 pint whipping cream

1 tbsp pure vanilla

1 cup sugar

Grated rind of one lemon

Clean the berries and cut into halves or quarters. Mix a cup of sugar with them, cover and place in the refrigerator.

Beat the eggs; add 1 cup sugar, mix well, add salt, four and grated lemon rind. Mix well. Pour into two cake pans that have been greased and floured. Bake 20 minutes at 350ยบ (or until browned and done in the middle). Remove from oven and let cool for 20-30 minutes. Remove the cakes from pans. Whip the cream. When almost done, add vanilla and a tablespoon or two of sugar if you like the cream sweet. When ready to serve, top one cake with berries and cream. Add the next cake on top and cover with berries and cream also. A real old fashioned Southern treat!
