Strawberry Summer Cake







I baked this cake last week and have already seen this on several other blogs since then. It is one plain and simple cake but absolutely bursting with flavor and so delicious. I plan on making this again next week since strawberries are still plentiful in this area. It's absolutely perfect for a light dessert with some freshly whipped cream. I'd suggest eating this within a day or two since you use so many strawberries and they may become soggy after too long. It only lasted here one day!!! Don't be afraid to overload this with strawberries. Before I put this in the oven it looked like I had too many berries but I could have even used more. Just pile them on top. They will form a jam after a while that just enhances the entire flavor of the cake. I do recommend making this as soon as possible. You won't be sorry. I found this over at Smitten Kitchen and linking this directly to the recipe! Enjoy and hope everyone has a great weekend. We having warm, dry weather here so outdoor activities are a must!!!

Smiles. I have made this twice, and LOVED it both times, even though the second time it fell. I'm thinking I overmixed it, but irregardless, it was enjoyed by all! A true keeper!!
