Strawberry cake

serving dumplings | Strawberry cake

A delicious, moist and extremely easy cake with lots of strawberries. Thanks to the addition of oil and buttermilk, this cake does not dry out and you can keep it stored for a couple of days. I topped the cake with whipped cream and fresh strawberries and before serving sprinkled it with strawberry sauce. Trust me, this simple combination is amazing.
