This is actually a very simple recipe. It's only 8 ingredients (not including the whipped cream or strawberries) and most of the time it takes to make this is baking time. It's really no sweat. Also the berries are looking really good these days so there really isn't any reason you shouldn't make this A.S.A.P!
Seriously how amazing do these berries look?!
The cake is nice and buttery, but not too heavy or sweet. The crust is slightly crunchy, while the middle is oh so soft and chewy. Top it with homemade whipped cream and some fresh, ripe strawberries and you have yourself a little slice of heaven. It's that good.
-2 cups sugar
-2 cups flour
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 cup butter, softened
-5 whole eggs
-1 1/2 tsp vanilla
-1 1/2 tsp lemon extract (optional)
Cream butter and sugar together. Add remaining ingredients excluding the eggs. Mix until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, being sure to beat well after each addition.
Spoon into a well buttered bundt pan or bread loaf pan (I used the latter). Bake at 325*F for a bundt pan, uncovered. For a loaf pan, bake at 325*F for 40 mins, then cover with foil and bake for another 20 mins. Check for readiness using a toothpick. If not ready, re-cover with foil and bake an additional 10-15 mins.
Nice and golden brown... yum
Turn over onto tin foil once done. Then using tin foil, turn over so it's the right way up onto a cooling rack. Serve with homemade whipped cream (heavy cream, a couple spoonfuls of icing sugar and a tsp vanilla), and fresh strawberries.
