And 10 of those Aiden was sleeping! Aiden has devoured 75% of this yummy cake:
Aiden is my baked goods fiend. He will try my creations and ask for them over and over again. Jakob likes certain things I make; chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes, sugar cookies, and chocolate cake. But when it comes to new things like scones, biscuits, or this ah-mazing Strawberry Cake, he hesitates. Not sure if he will like it he immediately says “No, Thank You” rather than taking a bite to see if he likes it. Quite frustrating as this goes with ALL food, if he isn’t sure he will like it he refuses to try it. Makes for a very limited diet for him. But I digress.
Aiden makes it easy for me to consider if a recipe is a success or not, usually by how quickly he devours it. And I will guarantee that this recipe from Maria, Two Peas and Their Pod, is a KEEPER. With strawberries about to come into season here, I can picture this being made many times over. And will make it with other berries as the seasonal fruit comes in. I look forward to making it again and adding a little bit of lime to it….maybe a glaze? Not that it needs it. It is light, a delicate crumb, with the burst of berry slices peeking out. It is called a cake, but I had no problem serving and eating this for breakfast….Aiden inhaled his piece! (I also recommend eating this with a little dollop of whipped cream….just saying!)
You can find the recipe HERE. And while you are there, check out Maria’s recipes for cookies….she always has great cookies going on!
