Absolutely in love with this cake! I made it for Summer Solstice and it was the perfect addition to the celebration.

Turned out to be the perfect summer cake! So light and fluffy, and not too overly sweet (you can definitely cut out a little bit on the sugar however) 🍓

Cake was delicious, but a bit too sweet. Could lower sugar by a couple of tablespoons. Also, it cooked for and hour and twenty minutes.

You must make this cake and eat it the same day. Gets a bit soggy on day 2, but still ok. Absolutely the best use of summer strawberries in a easy and delicious cake. I only make when guests are expected or I will eat the entire thing!!!

Love it! I've also made it with raspberries to good effect. I imagine this would work with most berries. It does sometimes take longer than an hour in the oven though - significantly, maybe caused by making two?

Turn out great. I add small chopped up strawberries to the batter as well as putting strawberries on top.

Such a simple but effective cake. The recipe is so easy to make and the taste is an explosion of flavour. It is definitely one of my favourites!

Seriously delicious. Very easy to prepare and keep an eye on. Sprinkle with some powdered sugar at the finish for an extra bit of flavor.
