"This simple and moist strawberry cake is an absolute must for this summer! To make the most of the peak season of the sweetest and juiciest strawberries, we used them in three ways to give the cake the dreamiest strawberry flavor. The orange zest supports the strawberry with its citrusy, floral notes. If you don’t have cane sugar on hand, you can also use any type of brown sugar, such as light brown sugar, turbinado or muscovado. The sugar adds a lovely crunch, contrasting the soft cake, but feel free to omit it."
