Easy Strawberry Cake

Thanks Smitten Kitchen!  I cannot wait to try this recipe out!

Easy Strawberry Cake

Makes a 9-inch cake

6 tablespoons butter, softened

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 pound strawberries, hulled and halved

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

Cream together the sugar and butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla and mix until combined. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir until incorporated. 

Pour the batter into a greased 9-inch cake pan. Place the strawberries, cut side down, on top of the batter. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar on top and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 325 degrees and bake for another 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan.
