A Summer Delight

These cakes are one of my absolute favorite things to make once the weather turns warm and the berries are ready for picking.  I first had them years ago at the St. Jude Gourmet Gala… The then pastry chef at 1789 had made them for the party and I was in LOVE.  I raced home, told my then darling boyfriend (now darling husband) about them and waited impatiently for the perfect summer fruit to make them.

I pulled out the recipe earlier this week to give to a friend and knew I had to re-share them with you.  Most of the vendors at the Dupont Circle Farmer’s Market this past weekend said the strawberries are at their end, so race out and get some and whip up this delight!

For the cake
1 2/3 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz. butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla Continue reading
