Strawberry Cake Recipe

I made this cake today for the first time and it's delicious. It would really be good with some whipped cream on top.

Ingredients:

Cake:
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup Greek strawberry yogurt
1 cup sliced strawberries

Topping:
1-2 cups sliced strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Directions:

For cake stir all ingredients together. Pour into 8 or 9 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Make topping while cake is baking. Put ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium/low heat. Turn down to low until cake is done. Pour over cake immediately after removing cake from oven. It looks like a lot of sauce, but it will soak into cake as it cools. Cut into squares and serve. Can use whipped topping or whipped cream for garnish or layer it over the cake once it cools. Refrigerate.

Enjoy,

Roast Beef with Potatoes and Carrots

Ingredients:

2-3 lb. boneless chuck roast
2 cans golden mushroom soup
1 pkg. Lipton onion soup mix
1 lb. baby carrots
2 lbs. new potatoes (cut in quarters)

Directions:

Brown roast on both sides in pan sprayed with cooking spray. Add vegetables, soup, and soup mix. You can cook this on top of the stove in a dutch oven, in the crock pot, or in the oven. If your family is like mine, you may need more potatoes, carrots and gravy. You can also substitute the golden mushroom soup for cream of mushroom soup if you like. You can serve over rice, if desired.

Enjoy,

Stuffed French Toast with Strawberry Syrup

I made this recipe for my granddaughter's 13th birthday. It is delicious and we both enjoyed it very much. I like making up a big batch of this recipe. It heats up well if you have leftovers. You can also wrap the french toast individually and freeze it until you're ready to eat it.



Ingredients:

12 slices of bread 
**I prefer wheat bread**
8 oz. cream cheese

2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring

1 cup strawberry jam or preserves
1-2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries, sliced

Directions:

Put strawberry jam in small saucepan on low heat. Heat until it starts to boil. Add strawberries. Only cook strawberries long enough to heat through. Spread the cream cheese on half of the bread slices and cover with other half of bread slices. Mix together eggs, milk, and vanilla. Dip bread in the egg mixture and grill on griddle sprayed with cooking spray, if you have one, if not, use a frying pan to cook the french toast. Cover with strawberry syrup. Enjoy.

Blessings,
