Wild Strawberry Cake

I made this Wild Strawberry Cake at the weekend with wild strawberries and a handful of strawberries picked from the garden. 
The wild strawberries are growing like weed, but thankfully I don't mind that and nor do the birds. I sometimes from the corner of my eye spot a blackbird or a mistletoe thrush scurrying amongst the growth, its rather amusing. 

I then go to pick a lovely big juicy looking strawberry and i find a beak peck. I don't overly mind, good for the birds if they beat me to the ripe strawberries - as long as i get some; and  i have been getting my fair share. 


D liked this cake very much and actually had two slices at one point. It was light and spongy with the wild strawberries making the cake fragrant, but also giving that sweet intense strawberry burst.  It was rather enjoyable to eat. 
I had intended to bake a Strawberry cake recipe from one of my many cookbooks, but i did not have the energy to sit and seek one out, so resorted to the world wide web, typed in Strawberry Cake and this is the Strawberry Cake recipe I baked if your interested.

  1. that sounds like me - good intentions to use the recipe books but often revert to online!!!! Your strawberry cake sounds wonderful and I love your observant and generous comments on sharing your berries with the birds.

  2. Shaheen,
    Your strawberry cook looks so delicious! How wonderful that you have your own garden. I miss mine that I had years ago in my old house. Then I started to join a CSA where we could go into the fields and pick our own. Now, I just go to the farmer's market..

    1. Thank you Judee. There are not many CSA schemes near me or farmers markets unless i go into other towns, cities or villages with halls. So i am pleased i can grow some of my own some of the time. its not enough though to go self-sufficient :( that is a wish.
