Strawberry Cake


Strawberry Cake

Quick and Easy moist vanilla based cake loaded with fresh strawberries. This strawberry cake is a must when strawberries are in season. The cake is made with yogurt and oil which keeps the cake moist even after few days. I love this recipe for several reason: its not overly sweet, requires simple ingredients and all done in one mixing bowl only requiring a whisk !
