Devouring fresh strawberries is one of my favorite summer pastimes. I love to eat them sliced on granola for breakfast, or over vanilla ice cream with a splash of fruity balsamic vinegar. A favorite new way to enjoy them is baked in this simple yet delicious strawberry cake – as it cools, the cake fills the kitchen with the intoxicating aroma of a strawberry stand.
