Vanilla Cake with Strawberries

Most of you know that I went to NYC recently – twice in the past month actually. Each time, I meant to make it over to the famous Magnolia Bakery that I’ve heard so much about. I’ve still never been. I’ve managed to go to Colicchio’s Craft, Bourdain’s Les Halles, and a fabulous little place called Cook Shop, but not to Magnolia…

So, when a friend’s birthday came around recently, I decided to try one of Magnolia’s recipes that I found online. Problem: there is only ONE Magnolia recipe online. And it’s for a vanilla cake…

I decided to give the cake a little extra goodness by adding fresh strawberries – with the weather we had this weekend, I couldn’t help but make it spring-y with some fresh fruit.

So here you have it – a dense, delicious cake inspired by Magnolia Bakery, even though I’ve never stepped foot inside.
