Strawberry Cake

25 04 2011

I have never had strawberry cake or even thought of making a strawberry cake until I saw this recipe on Two Peas and Their Pod. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to give this a try and it was delicious. It was like having strawberry shortcake all rolled into one. A great summer recipe I am sure your family will enjoy!

Start off in the typical cake fashion by mixing together all the wet ingredients then mixing in the dry ingredients. Once all mixed together transfer batter to a buttered pie plate or spring form pan. Then arrange strawberry slices on top of batter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake it in the oven and when it is done you have a great strawberry cake.
