Fresh Strawberry Bundt

You may remember that when I left my old job at the beginning of last summer, my former co-workers sent me off with a two week farewell treat tour. They took turns either baking something or buying treats to bring in, as a thank you for all the goodies I brought to them over the two years I worked there.

This cake was the very first treat of that tour, made with love by my friend Janelle. I’ve been waiting an entire year to make it. Grocery store strawberries just weren’t going to cut if for this beautiful bundt! I wanted fresh, local, sweet Ontario strawberries, and was willing to wait this long.

I’m so glad I did because this cake is a winner. It’s SUPER hydrated because it has a whole cup of greek yogurt, and it’s one of those cakes that tastes better the longer it sits. I love that.

I shared this with my new co-workers and it was gone in record time. I feel like this is so adaptable to any summer fruit you want to add in. I think a peach version would be particularly delicious, working that whole peaches & cream angle.
