Friday Food Fun - Strawberry Short Cake

God Friday Morning, One and All!!!
One of our local TV favorite as far as news....WBIR....has an afternoon show called "Live at Five at Four" have to live around these parts to understand why it's called that. Anyway, there is a cooking segment on the show most days, and some of the best recipes come from Lulu's Tea Room, located in Powell, TN. They made this cake on there one day and it looked sooooo good....would you believe I actually made it?!?!?! Pappy says, "YAY"!!!! It must be the buttermilk (which I hate as far as a beverage to drink...gross!!!)....but it must be the buttermilk that gives the cake such a different texture...anyway....very good. And...the strawberry spread (she used Smuckers....I used Wally World brand....Great Value)....really makes for a nice consistency for the strawberries to spread over the cake slices!!!

Strawberry Short Cake

1 3 ounce package instant vanilla pudding
