Strawberry Pop Cake


This cake may sound a bit odd when you read they ingredients but, it really is a perfect fun Spring recipe. A friend recently tried this Floridan/Ohioan Family’s 1950s recipe for her son’s birthday. It was a hit and quick to make. You might want to give it a try for your Bloomsday BBQ this weekend.
