Summer Strawberry Cake

Strawberry summer cake from Smitten Kitchen - This is one of the easiest dessert recipes I've made, tastes absolutely delicious, and will impress anyone you have over for dinner. Hit the jump for the step by step.

Start off with some beautiful strawberries

Butter you baking dish. A 10 inch pie plate or a 9 inch cake pan will work. I went with a 10 inch spring-form pan

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Add the egg and milk

Slowly mix in the flour, but be careful not to overmix

Layer as many strawberries as you can on top of the batter (I went with a little over a pound)

Sprinkle a few tablespoons of sugar on top of the strawberries to help them break down as it bakes

This is what it looks like halfway through

This is right before it came out of the oven. Let it cool before taking it out of the pan

Ready to eat

Slice and enjoy

Welcome to my blog, where you can join me as I revel in my love of food. Eating it, cooking it, baking it, watching it on TV and even learning about it. If it has to do with food, I am probably interested.
