I made this exactly as recipe. The cake was very good, topping was just like home made jame, but was too much as recipe called for. Next time I will half the toping and double the cake.
Shar-on, This was absolutely wonderful. I made it and took it to work. Everyone raved about it. The recipe called for 4 cups strawberries and after slicing 2 cups I made a decision to use only the 2 cups. I also reduced the amount of sugar over the strawberries to 1/3 cup, used the 2 Tbsp tapioca and forgot the butter. Maybe adding the butter would have given a glazed appearance. Did not change a thing for the topping. It was served at room temperature and no one objected. Definately will make again.
