Though it’s officially winters in LA and we are not supposed to think about summer fruits, I got a big box of strawberries and a few peaches from the near by grocery store….Although the berries were not as sweet as they are in the peak season, but they were not bad either…We ate a few and I sneaked out 5 big ones to make this cake…This cake is very moist and soft and sure to please your palate…So here is the recipe..

All purpose flour-1 cup and 2 tbsp
Unsalted butter-12 cup
Sugar-1 cup
