My Strawberry Bowl.....and a recipe

Lisa brought me this bowl from Savannah, Georgia last year. It is a colinder, so the berries will drain. This is one of my favorite bowls. Read on and you will find a recipe for Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake.
Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake:
2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup Crisco shorthning
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 whole eggs or 3 egg whites
1 quart fresh strawberries, rinsed and sliced
1 cup whipped cream or Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients in order listed, except strawberries and whipping cream. Beat with mixer on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, for 3 minutes. Pour into greased and floured 13 x 9-inch pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool cake completely. Cut into squares. Place 2 or 3 squares in dessert cups and layer with small amount of strawberries and whipped cream. Garnish with strawberries. A Heavenly Treat!
