This cake has been my choice for strawberry season since TCB first came out. Once I made four of them, sliced two flats of berries, and held my ice cream scoop at the ready as my military history group charged through for dessert. Especially the WWII vets came back for more cake, claiming it to be the best cake they’d ever eaten. While I don’t really believe that, I do believe that the country buttermilk cake tastes more like the flavorful cakes their mothers and wives baked in the old days than the box cakes many of them are subjected to today. What a great way to honor these great men, with great cake!
