Once you have a gorgeous gallon of strawberries on-hand, we’ve got you covered on how to use them!


This Strawberry Buttermilk Cake is a favorite of mine. The batter bakes up into a delectably moist cake with a great texture (hello, buttermilk!). The addition of freshly whipped cream on top lends a strawberry shortcake-ness that you'll love. Plus, it could be topped off with a wide array of different fruits. We can't wait to get our hands on fresh peaches and blueberries at the farmers' market soon, so that we can make this again…and again!
