Mountain Cake

My cousin just posted pictures of some old family recipe cards, and this cake was one of them.

Like my mom said, it's a super familiar recipe...very much a part of her childhood - and mine.

Strawberries and Mountain Cake
Originally uploaded by bcmom.
I've heard of strawberries and shortcake, but I don't think I've ever had that. In our house it was always strawberries and mountain cake. We always had a large strawberry patch so we had plenty of strawberries, both to eat and to freeze for later use. I remember plenty of times we had strawberries and mountain cake for dinner! I always made this in a 13x9 pan, so the first time I made this after I got married, I didn't realize this recipe is only for a square cake pan. Of course, since we don't have our own strawberry patch, a square cake is plenty.

Mountain Cake
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
With electric mixer, cream butter and sugar; add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Mix in milk. Combine dry ingredients, add to previous ingredients and mix well. Pour into greased square cake pan and bake 35-40 minutes at 350° or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve with strawberries and whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
