If June was a question, strawberries would be the answer. There is no fruit I associate more closely with the month of June than the gorgeous local strawberries of southern and eastern Ontario: plump, deep red, delicious and in-season. A few weeks ago I was leafing through the Martha Stewart's Cakes book, taking note of some of the recipes I was interested in making this summer. One that stood out for its simplicity was the strawberry cake on page 239. (You can also find the recipe online: click here). I decided to make it for the Summer Solstice weekend and I am very glad I did. The ease with which it's made belies the satisfaction of its flavour. I highly recommend you try this one this summer: simple and scrumptious!
