Strawberry Filling Vanilla Cake

Strawberry Filling Vanilla Cake

Today I went to buy some fresh fruits and I saw red and beautiful strawberries. I could not control on myself and bought a full box of strawberries. Then I thought why not make a plain vanilla cake with fresh strawberry jam and celebrate a cheat day in our diet routine. I made this delicious cake, it turned out so soft, moist and tasty!
Even my kids love this cake, that is why I thought why not share this tasty cake with all my lovely and precious visitors. You can change the strawberries to blue berries, cherries, raspberries, it’s totally up to you. Do try this delicious vanilla cake with strawberry jam and cream cheese frosting.
I am sure, once it’s cooked, you will want to eat the entire cake by yourself.
