This is the BEST strawberry cake recipe! Everyone loved it! I increased powdered sugar in glaze to a more frosting consistency--delicious!

Amazing!!! I have made this twice to rave reviews. Thank you so much for sharing! I made it first exactly as directed and the second time did some tweaking. I too decreased the sugar to 1 1/2 c. instead of 1 1/2. Also to make it a bit fluffier, I increased the baking powder to 3 tsp. I also separated the egg yolks and whites. I added the yolks in step 3 (also added about 2 T water), then in a separate bowl, I beat the whites and folded them in gently at step 6, instead of beating for 2 minutes. THis did make the cakes a little fluffier. I used Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting for the filling between the cakes and topped with the glaze. Absolutely my new favorite cake!!!

Now this is some cake. My Mee-Maw used to make this. I am very happy to have found the recipe. I made this for Labor Day and it was such a hit. The fresh berries make this out of this world. Very rich and sweet. The cake was also nice and moist. Thanks for posting.
