This easy cake is wonderful hot or cold, for morning or afternoon tea or a dessert. A definite family favourite.
Something else. I made a few minor changes. - reduced sugar to 1 cup - raw sugar rather than white sugar - 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup apple sauce instead of 1 1/4 cup oil - 3 tsp cinnamon instead of a Tbsp (though a Tbsp would have been OK) - I did puree almost all the strawberries with the oil and apple sauce, then blended in the beaten eggs. - Choc chips (about 1 cup) replaced the pecans as the younger ones don't like nuts in food. - I also baked 24 muffins (adjusting cooking time) and one (10cm x 20 cm pan) loaf. Muffins are better for lunch boxes *** A few days later I made this again, and I completely forgot to add the eggs, it's been accepted as a new recipe which you can view here: http://allrecipes.com.au/recipe/9185/strawberry-muffins--eggless-and-nut-free-.aspx - 19 Oct 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Substituted just under a cup of choc chips for the pecans - 17 Oct 2008
Fun way to use strawberries, and to add variety to the lunchbox! It would get a full 5 stars if I hadn't had to play with the sugar and oil amounts, I find my version pretty fantastic (see tweaks). Even the pickier members of this family (the children) enjoyed this one! This is a very quick recipe to make. - 19 Oct 2008
