Strawberry season reminds be of being a kid in small town Gilbert, SC. Springtime meant picking buckets of ripe strawberries at the local strawberry farm and devouring as many as I could. We made so many strawberry desserts and extras were prepped for freezing.
Sadly, the strawberry cake I grew up with normally came from a box and was bring pink in color. When I decided to find a recipe to make my own strawberry cake with fresh strawberries so many of them called for using strawberry jello. Nope, I’m not into the ‘jello in my cake to imitate strawberries’ thing. I want real strawberries in mine!
