A Collection of Vintage Strawberry Cake Recipes

Strawberry cake and shortcakes are among some of my favorite cake recipes tofind hidden in
tin recipe boxes.  I stumble across vintage recipes in the strangest of places.  Someday,
when I have a little more time, I will tell you some stories.

All of the collected recipes I add here are taken from handwritten recipe boxes or journals.

I am, single-handedly, trying to salvage old recipes from being lost to us forever.  You gotta
love a collector. (You believe all that?)

Seriously,
Our mother's and grandmother's spent a great part of their lives in the kitchen preparing
food for the family.  Those days and times are lost to us forever.  I don't want to loose their
recipes too.  It is their history, a part of who we were then.  A part of why we are what we
are today.

Their recipes are our history.  If you like this page, try our
All Chocolate Recipes, the  
Gumbdrop Fruit Cakes, Lemon Pound Cakes, Vintage Cakes, 1234 Cakes from the 50's
through 70's and don't forget the frostings like
War Time Cake Icing.  We also have Coffee
Cakes,  Four Layer Carrot Cakes and Cheese and Chocolate Cakes.  Every recipe taken from
handwritten index cards, diaries, journals and memories.  Don't forget to check out the

3/4 teaspoon salt

Knead.  Roll or pat dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut into 2 or 3
inch rounds.  Spread tops with butter.  Sprinkle with sugar.

Here she did not give the baking time.  So your guess is as
good as mine.  Just bake until done.

These old recipes, taken from Journals and little tin recipe
boxes are a fantastic way to keep our past alive.  Women
baked, broiled, fried, and concocted all sorts of goodies way
back then.  We should never loose our history.
