5 Stunning Summer Strawberry Bakes

by Lottie Huckle

published on 20 June 2016

Nothing quite beats a sweet, juicy British strawberry does it? Now strawberries are finally coming into season, we’ve compiled a list of 5 simply stunning strawberry bakes for you to try your hand at this Summer.

Strawberry Cake | Summer Bakes

Strawberry Cake from The Primrose Bakery Book by Martha Swift & Lisa Thomas

We had to include this recipe from The Primrose Bakery Book. This pretty pink sponge makes the most of fresh strawberries by using them in both the sponge and the filling. It’s the perfect recipe if you’ve managed to score a bumper crop of strawberries, or as the centrepiece of a Summer birthday party.
