strawberries are at their prime in the middle of summer. Once you get this in the oven to start baking, the aroma is going to whisk you away to a dreamy strawberry field.

i imagine myself skipping through the fields, under the setting sun, carrying a basket filled with freshly picked strawberries. 

 

Serving Size: 1 9" cake
