This is one of my favorite dessert recipes! It is of course perfect for summer, but I make it in the winter too because strawberries are usually available. Since the berries are baked you can get by with ones that are not that great to eat on their own.
Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in small bowl.
Beat in egg, vanilla and milk until just combined, then gradually add flour mixture. Mix just until combined – don’t over mix.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream
Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 325° and continue baking for 50-60 minutes. Test with a cake tester or toothpick – it should come out with no wet batter. Let cool on rack.
