The first time I baked this cake was in January 1959 (married Dec. 1958). My step mil made it and my husband liked it, so I gave it a try. Been baking it now for over 50 years - a real keeper!!

fresh instead of frozen strawberries okay in cake?

I have seen several recipes for strawberry cake that call for frozen strawberries--thawed first, of course.

Is it possible to substitute fresh ones? And if so, how do I determine the equivalent of fresh to frozen strawberries?

Thanks for any help!

ChefJune - that cake recipe sounds wonderful. I have a couple of quick questions for you. In the first step for assembling the cake, it says:
Quote:
Stir the filling well so that it is easy to spread. Spread a generous amount of Strawberry Preserves on the cake.
Is the filling mentioned just the strawberry preserves, or is there another component I missed?


Also, in the frosting recipe:
Quote:
3 tablespoons strawberry preserves (or 1/2 cup Sorrell Ridge Strawberry Conserves-spreadable fruit)
1/2 cup puréed fresh strawberries
Does it really jump from 3 tablespoons to 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) based on the brand you use? Or is the 1/2 cup conserves a substitute for the fresh puréed strawberries?
Thank you! This recipe is definitely going in my stockpile. I'm just bummed it's not strawberry season anymore!
