Fluffy Strawberry Lemon Cake
We had a lovely day at our friend’s picnic. Since I was short for time, I pulled this Easy and Delicious Fluffy Strawberry Lemon Cake together after cooking all day. You can always bake an Angel Food Cake if you have more time available. But since I didn’t, I used a bakery Angel Food Cake.
My daughter chopped the berries and decorated the cake for me, I think she did a beautiful job. Our friend’s and family loved the cake,. Try it with blueberries and raspberries if strawberries aren’t available.
