Happy Birthday America Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed strawberries. If these are tangy, add sugar to the same
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk for stand by
  • Heavy whipping cream or table cream Quantity is based on how much one would like slathered on the cake
  • Blueberries Quantity is based on how much one would like garnished on the cake
  • Slithered strawberries Quantity is based on how much one would like garnished on the cake

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375°.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder in a vessel and put it aside
  3. In another vessel, take the melted butter and all the sugar. Cream this mix well with an electric mixer
  4. Add eggs, one at a time and mix well.
  5. Add the vanilla essence
  6. Slowly add portions of flour and then strawberries, alternating to end with flour. Mix this mixture well.
  7. If the mix seems too thick and less of a cake batter consistency, add milk to it, little at a time, till the desired consistency is reached.
  8. Grease and flour a 13x9-inch baking pan.
  9. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for about 25 minutes, or till well baked. (Fork test: pierce the middle of the cake with a fork, if this comes out dry, it's ready to come out.)
  10. Take the baked cake out and wait till it cools.
  11. Once cooled, apply a generous lather of cream. (As if this were frosting)
  12. Finish off by decorating the cake to resemble the American flag.
  13. Now pop the finished cake into the fridge and serve it chilled.
  14. Enjoy!
