STRAWBERRY SHORTCUT CAKE

This recipe is from a lady who ran a country store with her husband when I was a child.

1 cup miniature marshmallows
2 cups frozen strawberries
3 oz pkg strawberry gelatin
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle marshmallows over the bottom of the baking pan. Combine strawberries and dry gelatin; set aside. Combine the flour and the remaining ingredients; beat at low speed of an electric mixer until moistened. Pour batter over the marshmallows in pan. Spoon strawberry mixture over the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Serve topped with whipped cream.
