My daughter is obsessed with strawberries. The girl is tiny but she can put down some strawberries. Since we always have a least a pound of them in our house, I decided to make a strawberry cake. And of course, Miss Leah loved helping me make it and snuck some strawberries to eat as well.

This is a super simple and light cake with a fresh strawberry taste and not artificial at all. Pureed strawberries and strawberry yogurt is the secret of the fresh flavor and the super moistness of this cake too. I love the flavor of this cake, so much. Then, what else do you top it with but cream cheese frosting. Duh. I vote cream cheese frosting on everything.
