Strawberry Cake with Dinner

The highlight of tonight's meal, Strawberry Cake, was inspired by a recipe by Mata Cukierenka on Pinterest.  My translation follows.  I know how to convert grams to dry measures, since I do that for a living.  Don't tell Dr. Head, I had to ask the internet for conversion from Centigrade to Fahrenheit. The strawberries are from Yoder's Farm in Grantsville, purchased today at the Mountaineer Mall Farmer's Market.

Spray 3 small bundt pans with Pam.  Beat 1 egg with 3 Tbsp. sugar.  Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 3 Tbsp. margarine, and 1/4 cup milk.  Stir in 1/2 cup flour, 1 Tbsp. cornmeal and 1/3 tsp. baking powder.  Grind 1/4 cup almonds and sprinkle in bottom of each pan.  Dice 1/2 cup strawberries and layer onto the almond crumbs.  Divide the batter evenly among the pans.  Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes.

Yes we did sample a piece of cake before dinner!  Here's the rest of the meal:
Also inspired by recipes on Pinterest, I cooked gold potatoes and carrots, purchased locally, and smashed with a little hot milk.  The sirloin steak was cooked in the crock pot after I got home from work with a balsamic reduction sauce.  Served with fresh garden tomato (from my parents) and mescalin mix from my container garden.

I had a lot of dishes to wash. . . .

YUMMY! Loving! And hey, there are a lot of cultures who support eating dessert before a meal; it prepares the palate! I too broke out my crock pot this week since the temps were a bit on the cool side :)
