Strawberry Cake

2 cups unbleached organic flour*
1 cup natural cane sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
4 eggs
1/2 cup unsalted organic butter, melted
1 cup pureed strawberries, fresh or frozen, thawed
1/2 cup organic milk

1 box powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons unsalted organic butter, melted
4-6 Tablespoons puréed fresh or frozen strawberries
fresh strawberries for decoration

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter (or spray) and flour 2 9-inch round cake pans or one 9x13 cake pan. Set aside. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In
a separate bowl, beat remaining ingredients together. Add to dry, beating with a wire whisk. Pour into prepared cake pans. Bake the cake for 30-35
minutes or until done when tested with a toothpick.

To make the frosting, sift powdered sugar into melted butter. Add strawberry purée to spreading consistency. Frost the cake and decorate the top of the
cake with fresh strawberries just before serving.

* If desired, you may substitute part of the unbleached flour with whole wheat pastry flour or white wheat flour

This is an excellent cake. No, of course you don.t have to use organic milk, organic flour, etc. if you don't already do so.
