Here it is, my award-winning strawberry cake recipe! Yes, I will be referring to myself as an award-winning baker from here on out. I was inspired by this Southern Strawberry Cake from Joy the Baker. I read through the recipe and then decided to make some modifications. To make it even more "strawberrier", I added some pureed strawberries.
When I posted my recipe for "The Best Lasagna Ever" yesterday, I couldn’t have anticipated that I’d wind up hearing from Draco, a real-live Italian who lives near Bologna, Italy, where lasagna was first created. Nor could I have ever predicted I’d hear from MP, who lives in an Italian neighborhood and buys Parmiganno-Regianno by the bag, dang it. I might just go ahead at this point and clarify that yes, my lasagna is, in fact, "The Best Ever"… unless you live near Bologna, Italy or in an Italian neighborhood or anywhere near Mario Batali . Okay?
