Are you ready for one of the easiest summertime desserts ever? You’ll love this fresh strawberry cake!
Hi! It’s Crystal from Everyday Adventures :) I don’t know about you, but I am a sucker for fresh strawberry anything… jam, donuts, shortcake, you name it!
There is nothing like waiting all year for the warm summer weather and then going out and picking berries. I took my kiddos out to pick strawberries, and we had a wonderful time making memories. I’m pretty sure my boys they ate more berries than they actually picked. That’s what its all about right?!
When we got home with all those luscious, red berries, I knew I wanted to bake with some of them. I found the perfect combination of easy and delicious with this fresh strawberry cake recipe. You’ll love it!
This recipe has a simple ingredient list. Most things you’ll have in the pantry except the berries and buttermilk. I have found that adding buttermilk to most of my recipes makes it THAT MUCH BETTER. If you are fresh out of buttermilk, you can always add about a teaspoon of lemon juice to a cup of milk. Let it stand for a few minutes, and the milk will curdle a bit like buttermilk.
I like to use my tart pan for this cake. When its done baking, I can just pop it out, and its beautiful and ready to be sliced. I love the look of the berries after they bake down and in. Yum!
This easy cake will be sure to impress your friends and family. Not only does it look beautiful, but it has a light, fluffy texture and incredible flavor. You can eat it on its own, or you can add vanilla ice cream over top! You could even take it a step further and add a dollop of hot fudge! I personally love chocolate and strawberries together. Don’t you?
I really hope that you like this recipe and that it is a hit with your friends and family! It is the perfect easy summer cake and tastes as great as it looks!
Don’t miss these recipes for the rest of your strawberries!
