  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 8 tablespoons 1 stick butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries chopped
  • Topping:
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick baking spray or spread with a thin coating of butter and then lightly flour the pan, removing any excess flour.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugars until well-combined.
  • Pour melted butter into dry ingredients and stir together until really well-combined with a rubber spatula. Add eggs one at a time, combining well after each addition.
  • Add buttermilk to the batter and stir well.
  • Gently fold in strawberries. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
  • Sprinkle entire top of cake with 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar to form a sugary crust on the baked cake.
  • Bake cake for 40-45 minutes until a cake tester or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely, about 15-20 minutes before serving.
  • Store cake slices in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
