Yay it´s strawberry cake time!!
Hello everyone, finally the first local strawberries are ready. Sweet and juicy and so beautiful. It´s the best time to bake a delicious strawberry cake. The cake is made from a mixture of buckwheat and wheat flour. Fresh eggs from my chickens, vegetable butter and sugar. If you are vegan, you can simply replace the eggs with an egg substitute.
It’s moist, rich, and buttery, and the buckwheat gives it a bit of earthy depth that really compliments the butter. This cake is a great canvas for a myriad of toppings and would go well with sliced citrus, blackberries, peaches, chocolate, whatever your preference might be! I love this cake.
