I was in the mood for strawberry shortcake using fresh garden strawberries, but I didn't want to buy the shortcake. Luckily it was super easy to whip it up in no time. #TexasHomesteader
Preheat oven to 450 degrees (425 degrees for dark pan)
Sift 2 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat egg, vanilla and milk. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until blended. Spoon into prepared baking pan and smooth batter with spatula or clean hands. (note - batter will be thick)
Bake in preheated oven until the cake is golden and the center of cake comes clean with a toothpick (about 20 minutes for me.)
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan & place on a wire baking rack to cool completely
