Strawberry Cake Recipe

Whenever I find myself in excess of a fruit (bananas, blueberries, etc.) I tend to use them in desserts, so recently having way too many strawberries on hand, I decided to make this Strawberry Cake from MarthaStewart.com before they all spoiled.

Of course my finished product looked nothing like the one on the website - I didn't use enough strawberries, for one thing.  So to make it look a little more decent, I decided to drizzle on some Nutella.

The end result was a cake that looked and tasted fab!
