A Recipe A Week: Week 4

I posted a couple of weeks ago about how I had gone and gotten a hug basket of strawberries from the Farmer's Market. Well lucky for ya'll, I decided to try a new recipe with them :) It is a very simple recipe this week.

Punch Bowl Strawberry Shortcake
from my mother in law's recipe cards!

1 Angel food cake       
12 oz cool whip           
16 oz sour cream         
5 oz evaporated milk   
3/4 cups powdered      
1 pkg strawberry         
1 qt fresh strawberries

1. Mix sour cream, milk, cool whip, and sugar until smooth.

2. Break cake into large pieces and fold in mixture. Cut strawberries in 1/2 and mix in glaze.

3. Layer cake mixture and strawberries, ending with strawberries on top.

*I used a box of Angel food cake from the grocery store. I baked them using the two 9" pan option. You can either make 1 large cake with this recipe or 2 small cakes.

Excuse the backdrop, but we are in the process of remodeling our kitchen :)

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!
