This is the time of year that I can get the most beautiful, local strawberries. I love to serve them over this yummy cake recipe that came from my 1941 New American Cook Book. The cake has a firm texture and isn't too sweet and is perfect with fresh strawberries and topped with whipped cream. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.
