strawberry cake 

My dad loves strawberry cake! The recipe he remembers was made from a lady from our church back in Lousiana and we don’t have that recipe.  So I have spent the last couple of years trying to recreate it and I think I finally did it!

This cake is moist, fresh and seriously delicious. My husband who is on a health kick and not eating sugar or flour, ate 2 pieces and wanted a 3rd but I had to cut him off to save him from himself, it was that good!
