Yellow Cake from Scratch

cut Yellow Cake 7 plate of strawberry shortcake
We picked strawberries and made jam. We can't have strawberries on hand and not have strawberry shortcake. I needed a cake so I pulled out my old recipe from the 1950's. Our neighbor, who would be over 110 years old, if she were living today, baked a lot of cakes for many occasions and this is her.
