I made this cake today for a family reuion and with the strawberry season coming I thought it would be a nice cake to take and something everyone else would not make. Also it is a pig-pick-in so I felt like we needed a fruit dessert. I found this in a cook book I bought from my sister-in-law when her church was having a fund raiser. It does not state where the cake originated so I don't know. Very easy cake to make and very good.
