While growing up as a child, my most favorite dessert that my Mother would bake would be her world famous strawberry cake. For nearly all celebrations where a request was necessary, the unanimous choice would be for Mom's Sunday Strawberry Cake! The recipe was handed down to my wife, Mandi, who continues to make the cake. The requests now pour in from her family for her to make this cake for them on many occasions. To this day, nothing marks a special occasion in our extended family like this cake, and I am happy to pass it along.
