This is the very first cake in the book and after doing over half the recipes, I’ve finally baked cake #1.
This Cake originally used all strawberries but the author of the cookbook recommends using whatever berries you like. I chose a combination of wild blackberries from the side of the road and fresh raspberries.
This cake was considered a “Hasty Cake” in the book, but it took me a while. I think if I made it again however, it would go a lot faster, especially without the picture taking. 🙂
It would be delicious with vanilla ice cream for a true dessert, but I’m gonna have it for breakfast. I like to think of it as a sort of coffee cake…but I’ll have it with tea 🙂
