Baking with Julia: French Strawberry Cake

by calmamaddg106

I will start by saying, I had high hopes for this recipe.  Do you see my ingredients? Yes?  Well, I forgot the vanilla and somehow forgot to preheat the oven.  Can I blame my mistakes on my children underfoot?  No?  Well, I tried to pass the blame.  My cake didn’t rise hardly, I tried my best and failed.  I didn’t like the cake too well either.  It was a lot like strawberry shortcake.  A plateful of whipped cream and strawberries would have been better.  I guess that’s why we are in this group, to try new things. I think my two mistakes hurt my overall results.  Oh well.
