Preparation / Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Butter a 9-inch round cake pan and line the base with parchment or waxed (greaseproof) paper.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

ICING:

Place the strawberries and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process to a puree. Fold into the whipped cream. Ice the cake and decorate with the strawberries and serve.
