Have had a hankering for strawberry rhubarb pie for awhile now but since I haven’t made it over to the Grandparents to pick their rhubarb yet, had to use up the berries!
Came across this recipe for the perfect summer cake. If anybody has a picnic to go to this would make a terrific go-along! Was very inspired by a recent invite I got for a picnic-themed bday party that Baby H is invited to! Anyways here we go:
6 tblsp unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup granulated sugar plus a lil on the side to sprinkle on top
1/2 cup milk (or substitute w/ soy, almond or rice milk)
1 lb strawberries, cut off tops and halve em.
1 tsp vanilla
Cream sugar, butter, egg, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Mix dry ingredients in other bowl. Add dry to wet gradually.
Pop into a buttered pie plate (deep dish) and put halved strawberries on top of batter (squish em in as much as you can).
Sprinkle a bit o’ sugar on top (about 2 tblsp).
Oven at 350 for 10 min, then turn down to 325 for 60 min.
Voila – Simple & Scrummy!
