Simple Strawberry Cake

I’m taking a (very short, unfortunately) break from studying, to post a recipe for this amazing cake. I baked it a couple of days ago, back when I actually had some free time. Can you feel my desperation? 1 exam is behind me, only.. 5 more to go. Oh.

Anyway, back to the recipe. It comes together in minutes, you only dirty one dish and you don’t need any fancy ingredients to prepare it. Basically, it’s all my blog is about.

And there are strawberries! Like, fruit! And very little butter! Which makes it totally healthy.

Do try it, I’m sure you’ll like it. It’s my first Fiesta Friday post as well.. It technically is Saturday already, but you know. Exams.

Also, I’m very proud of this picture. Just thought you should know. Don’t mind me, carry on.
