I used a recipe from allrecipes.com and followed it pretty much exactly except that it says to put all the strawberries on top and I mixed in about 2/3 of them. Unfortunately, this recipe is merely okay. And this time, the mediocrity is not my fault! I really did what it said. But next time (if there is a next time), I will use
- less sugar
- less butter
- more strawberries
On the bright side, I got to use one package of strawberries and the cake is certainly good enough to eat (though it doesn't have to be very good for me to think so). Next time I have extras I'll just go the safe route with strawberry shortcake (following my grandmother's example, because she makes absolutely THE BEST strawberry shortcake. Stay tuned for it this summer...).
