I have a few more delicious cakes up my sleeve! You need to try this Chocolate Fudge Cake, it has a wonderful peanut butter frosting.

This Blueberry Lemon Loaf Cake is great as a dessert or for a brunch. It also uses fresh berries!

Of course the addition of a cream cheese frosting puts it over the edge. I use the frosting included in this recipe a lot, especially on The Best Carrot Cake.

Part of the reason why I love this time of year is the influx in a variety of affordable fruits, mainly berries. It’s so nice to grocery shop and have more selection now.

Needless to say, I’ve been buying strawberries almost every time I’m at the grocer.

Adding them into the kids lunch kits is a nice change, and having them as snack for myself is most welcome – yet I’ve also been baking a lot with them.

Strawberry all the things – it’s spring!

For no reason in particular, or maybe because I had every reason to, I recently made Strawberries and Cream Cake.

I really do love this cake, it screams ‘spring’. While a lot of cakes are heavy and rich, this one is light and sweet.
