Favorite Strawberry Cake

submitted by butterflydog

4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter melted
1 tsp vanilla or strawberry extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
3/4 cup chopped nuts ( optional )

Strawberry frosting:
3 Tbsp butter softened
4 oz cream cheese
3 to 3 1/2 cups powder sugar
1 cup mashed fresh strawberries

My favorite strawberry cake, I don't use any nuts as I think it takes away
from the flavor of this great cake Beat eggs with sugar until light and
fluffy beat in butter and vanilla until well mixed. Combine dry
ingredients and add to creamed mixture and beat for 2 minutes. Blend in
berries and fold in nuts if using. Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13
pan. Bake in a preheated 350F oven about 30 minutes or tested done. Cool
completely. For frosting: combine butter and cream cheese and beat smooth.
Add 3 cups of powder sugar to make a frosting. Stir in berries. add more
powder sugar to get frosting consistency. Spread over cooled cake. Chill
until firm.
