What is a National Strawberry Shortcake Day without a great recipe?! This is a favorite from Taste of Home that I've made for years:

Mom's Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:9 servings

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

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8-in.-square baking pan. In a large bowl, beat eggs on medium speed 3 minutes. Gradually add 1 cup sugar, beating until thick and lemon-colored. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; beat into egg mixture. In a small saucepan, heat milk and butter just until butter begins to melt. Beat into batter with vanilla (batter will be thin).
2. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
3. Just before serving, cut cake into serving-size pieces; cut each slice horizontally in half. In a large bowl, combine strawberries and remaining sugar; spoon between cake layers and over top of each serving. Top with whipped cream and, if desired, mint leaves. Yield: 9 servings.
