Yummy and easy cake! I didn't have buttermilk, so I added 1Tbs. to 2% milk and let it sit for 5 minutes before adding it to the mix--a perfect buttermilk substitute anytime. I also used about 3/4 cup of fresh strawberries from the garden (the kind that are juicy, sweet, & red on the INSIDE too!), and minced them before adding them to the batter. I topped my cake with the lemon glaze from the "Lemon Glazed Cake" recipe and it was a nice Strawberry-Lemon pairing, though pretty sweet/tart! Might have liked some not-too-sweet whipped cream with it, to cut the sweet/tartness a bit or just use cream cheese frosting instead next time. I gave it 4 stars because I think fresh strawberries are in order, and it doesn't suggest a topping/frosting/pairing to serve it with. Enjoy!
