It's strawberry season! We always had a strawberry patch growing up, and I have fond memories of strawberry picking. I ate most of what I picked as I went and ended up with strawberry juice all over my face and shirt. Another tradition was homemade strawberry shortcake. My mom typically made a spongy, yellow cake to serve as shortcake. While I live in the suburbs with my kids, there are still strawberries to pick at grandma's house, and they love buying fresh strawberries at the farmer's market on Saturday mornings. I searched the Internet for a shortcake recipe that might allow me to share my memories of my favorite desert growing up with my own children. I found this recipe that not only tastes great, but it also very easy to make with simple ingredients. No trip to the specialty food store necessary. I wasn't sure about the pinch of nutmeg, but it gave the cakes a great flavor.
