  • To sour milk, stir 1 tablespoon lemon juice with a cup of milk and let stand a minute.
  • Preheat to 350°F Butter a 12-cup Bundt pan and set aside.
  • Prepare the strawberries and set aside. In a food processor, cream the sugar and flour with the cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Fold in the vanilla, then blend in eggs, and process to blend batter well. Fold in the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder together and add to the mixture, alternating with the buttermilk to make a smooth batter.
  • Spoon half of batter into prepared pan. Make sure the pan is big enough. I did this once and it ended up spilling out all over my oven. Spread reserved cream cheese filling all around top of batter (being careful not to touch edges). Sprinkle strawberries evenly over this. Top with remaining batter. Bake 60-75 minutes until cakes tests done. Let cool 15-20 minutes in pan before inverting onto a serving plate. Dust with confectioner's sugar or fondant.
  • For the Soaking Syrup, heat the sugar and water to a gentle boil in a small saucepan. Simmer 3 minutes and then cool to room temperature. Using a pastry brush, soak cake thoroughly, at least twice with this syrup.
  • For the Vanilla Glaze, whisk all ingredients in a small bowl adding hot water as required to make a pourable glaze. Drizzle over cake (that has syrup or not – up to you – the syrup makes the cake far more moist).
  • More often than not I just heat up a can of vanilla icing in the microwave for several seconds and spoon that over. It's still delicious.
  • This cake freezes well.
