    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You won't find this anywhere else this is my own recipe that I developed, the delicious yellow sponge-like cake that is just dense enough to hold the strawberries and whipped cream after making this you won't go back to any other recipe! -- plan ahead the strawberries must sit in the sugar for minimum of 6 hours to release their juices, the more sugar the better! really you can use as much whipped cream and strawberries as desired, the amounts listed are only a guideline! If desired you can make two separate cakes topped with berries and whipped cream in place of the layered. Due to the small amount of liquid in the cake it is important to have the eggs and butter at room temperature and the milk lukewarm or all the ingredients will not incorporate together while mixing.

      Made exactly as directed (I was afraid not to with all the warnings in the instructions!). The cake turned out terribly dry and DH (very gently) asked me not to make this again. I even reduced the bake time by 5 minutes.

      This cake was perfect!! I made in a bundt pan and cooked about 35 minutes (until the top looked done and toothpick prick was dry). I made slices and layered it on the plate with the sliced strawberries, homemade whip cream, and I also made some homemade strawberry sauce from frozen strawberries and sugar. It was so good! Everyone loved it. The cake was perfectly dense but still light, so it held up to all the toppings and filling and didn't get soggy. The best part was the outside of the cake crusted and was almost like a biscuit!!! Will definitely make this again. Thanks for yet another amazing recipe!!

      I found the cake to be too dry, I was expecting more of a biscuit type of shortcake.
