We have a patch of strawberries growing in our back yard but it’s still young and only produced a few strawberries during the spring. I can’t wait to see what it produces next year because the strawberries off our vine were SO. SWEET! So much better than store bought. If you have a chance, plant your own strawberry plants next year, you will love them! Meanwhile, pick up some organic strawberries at your local market and dive into this cake-like heaven!
