- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar (set aside 2-4 tsp for sprinkling over strawberries)
- 1 egg
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2-2 ½ cups of sliced strawberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease your baking dish of choice. I wanted to bake this cake in smaller batches, so I used a small baking dish and 2 mini loaf pans instead of the 10-inch pie dish used in the recipe.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, beat together the egg, softened butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture in small batches and mix well after each addition.
Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dishes. Arrange the sliced strawberries on top of batter, cut sides down, and sprinkle the remaining sugar over the strawberries.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Slice and serve.
