Strawberry Long Cake, A 1950's Recipe

Kathie Carr


I remember when my Aunt Clara gave Mom this recipe. It was sometime in the early 1960's.

Since we raised acres of strawberries on the farm Mom always had a supply of fresh or frozen berries and was looking for new ways to use them. This became a year round favorite with the frozen berries.
