This is delicious with a generous dollop of whipped cream!

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 3-oz. package strawberry gelatin
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1/2 cup shortening

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk

Preparation:
Sprinkle the marshmallows into the bottom of a 12-inch dutch oven.

"Marshmallows"

In a bowl, combine the sliced strawberries, gelatin powder, and lemon juice.  Set aside.

"Strawberries"

In another mixing bowl, cream the shortening and the sugar. 

"Creamed Shortening and Sugar"

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in vanilla. 

"Eggs and Vanilla"

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk.

"Batter"

Pour the batter over the marshmallows. 

"Batter in the Oven"

Spoon the strawberry mixture evenly over the batter.

I did this one with Blackberries.  It was really good - especially with a big dollop of Whipped Cream.

Blueberry shortcake? Hmmm...that DOES sound good!
There are two rules of Dutch Oven Cooking:
1) If you cook too much food, share.
2) Cook too much food.

I made this with canned peaches and apricot gelatin for ScoutJam 100, and it was delicious. I'm trying it again tonight with peaches from my peach tree that have been frozen, thawed, and drained.
