How to Make Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake


  1. For cake: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 2 round 9-in. cake pans.

  3. Pour into prepared pans, and bake for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
