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.

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:)
