Abundant Strawberries


 
Strawberries are in! I couldn’t help myself; I had to post my two new strawberry cake recipes that are scrumptious!!! They are very similar, but different enough to try both. The second cake recipe is the one I took to the May Pamlico Emmaus Gathering.
Dummy me forgot to take a picture of my own cake; so, I had to use the one off the website where I got the recipe. God bless you! Enjoy!

  1. Oh my this sounds amazing! Making me hungry and ready to go strawberry to make this, homemade jam and a million other sinful concoctions! That is, if the strawberries even make it home- I'm a sucker for them fresh off the vine. ;) -Dana (not sure why logged on as the hubby)
