1st Online Bake Sale Update and Lemon Strawberry Bread Shortcake!

First for the very important info. There are 3 people, including me who will be donating baked goods for the May 4th Online Bake Sale so far, and here they are:
Kate from Diethood
My friend home town friend Maureen
and of course me.
Thanks to those who have signed up, from the bottom of my heart!

 I know that is there are still several weeks to sign up for the May 4th event,  and people are busy.  To sign up send an e-mail to me at  You'll have to copy and paste this in your browser. The deadline to donate is Thursday, April 28th  If you don't  have time to bake,  you can always be a bidder, or just make a donation on My Donation Page,  which will go directly   to the American Cancer Society.  I also have a badge on the top right of blog page , which connects directly to my donation page.  Lots of ways to contribute! 

Thank you for your support in this very important cause, which is in honor of  mybrother going through his third round of chemo for a rare type of Leukemia, and all the the people fighting the battle of their life against cancer, including Lora, The Cake Duchess.  Please keep them all in your prayers.

Now we all need a treat now and then.  I got this idea to use the Lemon Strawberry Bread to make Short Cake, from Brandie, at The Country Cook.  Thanks, Brandie!  What could be better than two thick pieces of my Lemon Strawberry Bread, with luscious juicy strawberries sandwiched in between, and topped with creamy mounds of whipped cream and topped with a strawberry?  Nothing I know of.  my husband and I shared this magnificent piece of Lemon  Strawberry Bread Short Cake.  If you didn't have a reason to make this Lemon Strawberry Bread before, you sure do now. Because there is Greek yogurt in the bread, the texture is much like pound cake.

Lemon Strawberry Bread
Click here for recipe for the Lemon Strawberry Bread.
1 pint of heavy whipping cream
1 pint of yummy strawberries, cleaned, sliced and mashed or macerated
Powder Sugar to taste
1 tsp vanilla

Wash, hull, and slice berries. Mash or macerate berries, until slightly juicy. Set aside.  Pour whipping cream  into bowl mixer, with whip attachment. Slowly beat cream until it begins to thicken.. Then beat on medium  speed until soft peaks form. don't beat t long, or you will end up with butter!   Gradually add powdered sugar, as desired, along with vanilla.Refrigerate until ready to use.

Cut your Lemon Strawberry Bread in thick planks. Put one plank on a plate or in a bowl add juicy berries on top of bread. then top with another piece of Lemon bread on top, and spoon more strawberries on top.  dollop mounds of whipped cream, and garnish with whole berries. Enjoy.!  I have always been a Purist when it comes to strawberries, and just liked them plain, or mashed, in a bowl.  But now my new love is this Lemon Strawberry Bread Short Cake:)
