Strawberry Buttermilk Cake

A few weeks ago, a trip to the Farmer’s Market resulted in a cartons upon cartons of fresh California strawberries. Not to brag, just a right of passage for Spring around here. And so, naturally, I got to baking.

I wanted a quick, fuss-free cake because the kitchen remodel was still underway. I searched for a cake that would celebrate fresh strawberries and that would also use up the last bit of buttermilk in my refrigerator. I was blown away with what came out of the oven. I knew it’d be good, but I wasn’t expecting just how good.

You have the choice here for both the final appearance of the cake and it’s texture on top. Either sprinkle a spoonful of granulated sugar directly on the batter before baking for a crisp and crackly top lid or bake as is and then dust with powdered sugar for a soft finish (please use more that I did for the photo. I ran out)!! I chose the latter. Actually the latter chose me. I completely forget to add the sugar on top before baking but I was so happy with the soft top that the mistake was actually welcomed.

Enjoy your fresh strawberry buttermilk cake this weekend over Memorial Day.

  1. My gosh, i’m going crazy. I had to visit your “About” page, to check, to take a better look, to see who’s that girl ! I really like your introduction. Do you mind if i ask the following : Do you have a store, dear ? A bakery ? A chocolaterie ? A sweet-something store ?

    I’m interested in buying and in tasting. Thanks, dear, for your wonderful recipes, and PictureS !


    1. Thank you so much for your interest and stopping by my page 🙂 I really appreciate the support! I don’t have a store or boutique yet but that will certainly be my next step. I’ll keep you posted:) What recipes stand out to you most? Thank you again!


      1. You’ re welcome, dear. I wish you all the best. I like the fact that you prefer to use the word “boutique” instead of the word store. At least it comes first when you think of a store, or a professional space. Next time i’ ll write down “my” recipes. Actually, i like most of them, if not all. You should take advantage of the way you present your creations, if you make the movement to go on with a boutique. You know how to.
