Strawberry and Cream Cake Recipe

Start by creaming your butter and sugar together with a mixer. Then, add your eggs one at a time. Next, add in the lemon juice and vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir the dry ingredients together.

To combine the wet and dry ingredients, start by adding some of the flour mixture into the other, but not all of it. Then, add a layer of buttermilk, then flour again. We alternate until it’s all mixed together.

Mix that on low until it’s combined and then fold in the strawberries.
