Strawberry Shortcake

Take three eggs and their weight

From 1922:

Take three eggs and their weight in flour, butter and sugar. A pinch of baking powder, strawberries, whipped cream. Cream butter and sugar, and then proceed in the usual way. Bake the cakes in shallow round tins and leave till cold. Mash some ripe strawberries, sprinkle with sugar, and a little lemon juice, spread a layer of them on one of the cakes and cover lightly with whipped cream. Place another cake over the strawberries, repeat the fruit and cream, add another cake and let the top cake be covered with the strawberries and cream.
