Are you one of those people that starts off every grocery trip with putting a pint of strawberries in your basket then only to find you throwing them out (AGAIN) because you never ate them before they went bad?
Yes, me too. Our family LOVES strawberries and in the spring time I love to buy them. But unfortunately sometimes good ideas don’t always get executed and I can tell you from personal experience brown strawberries don’t make them taste sweeter. 🙂 However, I really hate throwing those strawberries away because no one took the time to cut them up and enjoy them. At least with bananas when they get old you can throw those babies in the freezer and whip up banana bread, banana shakes and anything else banana you want.
So it got me thinking – why can’t you do the same thing for strawberries? Why can’t you just have a few recipes that you know you can use those strawberries before you send them to the bottom of your trash can?
Dang Good Strawberry Cake
This cake doesn’t just take lots of strawberries, but everything else you have in your refrigerator. I can’t believe how easy it was and it was THAT good. I made this for my Mother-in-Law for her birthday cake last year, but I’m pretty sure we didn’t send it home with her. We kept it and ate every bite.
