Wow Bev, this is yummy! My aunt brought me strawberry picking over the weekend and I made her this cake as a thank-you gift. She loved it! The cake was moist and smells SOOoo GOOD when baking! I bake about twice a year and never with much success, but this was really easy. Actually I don't even have an eletric mixer, but with the help of BF, the result was still good. Midway through baking I found the cake was already browned but the cake's not done yet (must be because I have small oven), so I cover the pan with aluminum foil and continue baking. It wasn't a problem. I omitted the syrup because I don't have it and becuase the strawberries were already very sweet. Thank you again for this great recipe, I am so glad my aunt loved it! :D!!

"Strawberry Syrup" refers to another Southern Living recipe in the same issue (April 2002). Definitely not the milk flavoring! Great recipe!

This is just a clarification note - some people seem to be confused about the syrup listed at the end of the instructions. I think this refers to the sweetened strawberry juice that collects in the bowl with the berries, not that neon pink milk-flavouring junk you buy in the grocery store.
