Magnificent compliment to freshly sliced strawberries! I used 2% milk, real egg whites and also real butter to prepare my recipe. I loved the addition of the meringue to this cake. It added just the slightest additional sweetness that was needed. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who enjoys strawberries! Thanks for the lovely dessert, Meow! We loved it!
