I made this for my stepmother's birthday dinner and everyone loved it! I made a couple of changes to make it a touch healthier and even more flavorful! I used half white flour and half whole spelt flour, which is highly nutritious and has a mild, sweet flavor that is closer to white flour than whole wheat. I used 1/4 cup sugar in the strawberries, which worked out great, and I used half the salt it called for. I added a beaten egg and lessened the amount of milk, so it would hold together better. I also did not put butter on the layers- I felt that butter and whipped cream were overkill in the heavy dairy department. Also, I found that the cake was thick and sturdy enough that I was able to cut it into three layers instead of just two. I put strawberries, whipped cream and banana slices in between each layer and on top. The bananas added a yummy, sweet touch. I can't wait to make this again!
