Strawberry Shortcake

2 eggs
1-1/2 cup sugar, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 1-1/2 quarts fresh strawberries, sliced
Whipped cream
Mint leaves, optional

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs on medium speed for 3 minutes. Gradually add 1 cup sugar, beating until thick and lemon-colored. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; beat into the egg mixture. Heat milk and butter just until butter begins to melt. Beat into batter with vanilla (batter will be thin).

Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Just before serving, cut cake into serving-size pieces; cut each slice in half horizontally. Combine strawberries and remaining sugar. Spoon strawberries between cake layers and over the top of each serving. Top with whipped cream; garnish with mint leaves if desired. Makes 9 servings.
