Let me eat cake

Growing up there were always boxes and boxes of strawberries in my Granny's freezer. I hated strawberries, but every other person in the family loved them. My dislike was rooted in texture...those seeds were a deal breaker. For some odd reason no one was willing to peel them for me.

True to the idea of tastes changing, I now LOVE fresh, ripe, juicy, and sweet strawberries. Chop 'em up, sprinkle some sugar over them and you have near perfect cake or ice cream topping. More often than not, I will serve over angel food cake, pound cake or (when someone requests them) those little foam-like cake rounds from the grocery store.

Monday night while Wes was out in the woods for a hike, an uncontrollable urge to make a sponge cake took over my very being. After comparing recipes in my trusty cookbooks with some online recipes, I found "the" one.

Very easy to do and after 30 minutes baking, sponge cake nirvana had been achieved.
Any time that I can make something from scratch, it is going to happen in this kitchen. Good food choices center around getting the best foods for your family. I feel strongly that if you rely on convenience products as cooking, you are missing the whole point of good food choices. I understand the whole idea of not enough time, but frankly the truth is every single day we find the time to do the things that we really want to do. Anyway, back to cake...

Seriously, how can you not want to gobble this up???
