Strawberry Picnic Cake

get to a farm and get pickin'!

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 egg

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!

Happy Thursday!
