Here, have some cake

Last week Doug drove out to the Agricenter and picked up some strawberries from Jones Orchard for me. I had it in mind to make a strawberry cake with them, but searching in my cookbooks and online led me to mostly recipes that used boxed cake mix and strawberry gelatin, buh? Nothing against cake mix but um, that was not really what I was going for. I Google-ed some more and finally found this recipe for a strawberry shortcake/cake hybrid from The Pioneer Woman. I made it exactly as the recipe is written and it turned out so nicely. I used a springform pan since my normal cake pan wasn't tall enough and it was perfect. The strawberries were incredibly ripe and sweet and the cream cheese frosting was a nice accompaniment to the juicy strawberries and vanilla flavor of the cake.

Oh, April - that cake is gorgeous! And it looks delicious. (I hate cake mix - too much partial hydrogenation. And it just doesn't taste good. Blech.)

Looks really good. And very pretty. Nothing better than fresh strawberries. YUM!!
