Fresh Strawberry Cake

It was while traveling through the Quebec Eastern Townships region that I discovered this cake recipe for my Eastern Township Traditional cookbook. This fine-textured cake is delicious with coffee. I don’t suggest you prepare it with frozen strawberries which make too much liquid when cooked.
