Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Rustic Strawberry Cake

Yes, this is the second strawberry studded recipe in my Pinspiration in the Kitchen series.  Yes, I just may LOVE summer strawberries.  (And I love even more how much cheaper they are once May and June has come along. ;) )

My newest pinspired recipe comes from the amazing kitchen of Martha Stewart.  When I read the ingredients and the directions for her Rustic Strawberry Cake, I seriously asked myself, "Is that it??".  I literally only had to buy the strawberries to make this.  Everything else I already had on hand in my pantry.  Click here for the recipe.

This cake came together incredibly easily.  I think it maybe took me 15 minutes to whip up the cake batter, cut the strawberries, and put it all into the pan.  (I used a cake pan instead of a pie plate.  I still haven't found my pie pans in the unpacking of the house. ;) )  The cake was a HUGE hit with my family.  My son even had 2 pieces after dinner the other evening!  I served it topped with whipped topping.  The great thing about this cake is that it would also be delicious made with raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries (or how about a combination of berries?).  This is going to become a staple in our house all throughout berry season. ;)
