  1. Wash, hull, drain and crush strawberries.

  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until well blended. Add milk to make a soft dough. Beat rapidly for 1 minute, or until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl. Turn the dough onto a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. Divide in half and, with floured hands, spread each half over the bottom of an 8-inch cake pan. Prick the surface with a fork.

  3. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 15 minutes or until golden.

  4. When done and still hot, spread 1 layer with 2 tablespoons butter. Place the layer on a serving plate, buttered side up, and spread with half the strawberries. Top with the second layer and the remaining strawberries.

  5. In a bowl, with an electric mixer at high speed, whip cream and sugar to stiff peaks. Serve cake warm with whipped cream.
