    This recipe makes a very good cake! I got a lot of rave reviews. I used a coffee mascarpone filling and chocolate ganache frosting, instead of doing strawberries. I also added about 1/4 tsp xanthan gum.The cake was very tender and moist.

    I just made this for my niece’s birthday. It was moist and delicious! I made sure to get perfectly ripe strawberries. I frosted with buttercream frosting made with Pamela’s Vanilla Frosting Mix (I used 2 sticks of butter). I will definitely be making this again, with or without the strawberries. Would be delicious with any type of filling or frosting.

    Hello There! I was so excited when i saw this recipe as my mom is gluten free. However, when i baked it the batter was super doughy. It was also quite hard and dense. I’m wondering what i did wrong as I followed the recipe to a T. I’d really appreciate if you responded. 🙂
