this was a wonderful cake, coming from someone who doesn't like or eat cake. in the picture looked quite short so i doubled the recipe for the batter but used a single recipe for the topping and baked it in a 9x9 square baking dish for 50 min to get a higher cake. for the batter i added 2 tsp of vanilla essence and used two cups of sliced strawberries but next time i will try adding more strawberries and pushing some into the batter. for the topping i added a 1/4 cup rolled oats, reduced the butter by 1 tbsp, reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup and used all brown sugar. as one reviewer suggested, i added an extra 1/4 cup flour since i was reducing the sugar, but this made the topping a bit too thin so next time i will stick with the 1/2 cup of flour.
we took this cake to a family dinner and everyone loved it. all in all a wonderful, versatile recipe!
