An Inviting Strawberry Cake For A Sweet Breakfast

An Inviting Strawberry Cake For A Sweet Breakfast

I saw this strawberry cake recipe on a site and one hour after I was already preparing it.

Yes, I admit, I am strongly attracted by beautiful food. When I see a beautiful food photograph, if it is not too heavy (calories and/or fat and sugar quantities) or complicated, it goes straight to my to-do list.

This cake is not too sweet and so it is perfect for breakfast…and I also eat it as a middle-morning snack. The strawberries keep their freshness and taste and being well divided into the dough, there’s quite no bites without a piece of strawberry inside.

I made a change regarding the original recipe I found in Ricette & Co. blog: I didn’t use the homemade limoncello, but just lemon juice. I did it for two reasons: I wanted it to be less sweet and I believe there’s a few of you out there who has homemade limoncello at home.
