What a delicious cake. Husband can't get enough of it. I didn't have any problems at all with the cake other than having to bake it for quite a bit longer than what the recipe said. Just kept a watchful eye on it. Added 1 tsp of salt to the dry ingredients to "brighten" the flavors of the cake.
I used 2 - 9" rounds and trimmed the excess.
A moist, not too dense cake with a delicate crumb. Like I said, delicious. The strawberry flavor comes through very nicely.
I paired it with White Cake Frosting I from this site and the flavors went well together.
I use my 6qt stand mixer to make all my cakes and I think that this helps by creaming the butter, sugar, gelatin mixture better so that the cake comes out right. Using a hand-mixer or trying to beat it by hand may not have your cake come out correctly with this particular recipe. But that is my lowly opinion.
Also, like other reviewers have stated - sift then measure. This makes all the difference!
A keeper recipe for sure. Look forward to using it again in the future.
