It’s not often that I bake with white flour, white sugar and butter, so when I do it’s a real treat for everyone around me.
Especially my family, ya all know how they’re such a tough crowd to please.
This year for my brother’s birthday I baked a simple vanilla cake and topped it off with sliced strawberries and an almond crumble top.
Everyone loved this Strawberry Almond Crumb Cake, especially my mom, and so much so that she froze the leftovers for another day.
This cake isn’t too sweet. The strawberries add sweetness with a little tartness, and additionally I didn’t go too crazy on the sugar and butter amounts.
The perfect spring or summer cake, and just in time for Mother’s Day!
Hope you guys love it as much as my family and I did, especially my mom!
