This was very tasty and rich. I couldn't keep my husband away from it! The only thing I did different was not coat the pan with breadcrumbs. Can you tell me what this does to the recipe? We ate this cake with strawberries on top, and then had it another time with scoops of boysenberry ice cream on top. Yummy! Will make again for sure. Thank you!

This is a keeper! So quick and so yummy. Needed something quick last night to go with our berries and this was the answer. Did not use the breadcrumbs and added both lemon zest and vanilla. Can't wait to use all summer long as fresh berries/fruit come into season.

Oh my--this is so wonderful. It's perfect for strawberry shortcake. It has a yummy light texture that soaks up the juices and sugar from the strawberries. I didn't use bread crumbs to coat the pan--just sprayed with Pam which made the cake slide right out. Thanks!

Made this with my 9 yr old neice and it was easy to make and came out well. Perfect accompaniment to the strawberries we just picked! Froze the extra cake so hopefully it defrosts well too.

Yes, ridiculously easy and fast! I'm not much of a baker, but this turns out great for me every time. I'm up to my elbows in strawberries and this cake is a wonderful accompaniment. Thanks.

TOO EASY!!! I am always looking for easy recipies that include ingredients I have on hand. My 4 and 3 year olds love to cook, too and helped me with this one. It was SO easy! I had no bread crumbs and literally crushed up 2 slices of light bread (from Braum's) until it was in crumbs and stuck them to the sides of the pan. My oven took 35 min. It was a hit with the whole family. We put cool whip on top and added some fresh cut blueberries, honeydew, and strawberries. YUMMM!

This is great I made the cocoa version at the last second for strawberry shortcake. I never tried strawberries on chocolate cake before, it was wonderful. The cake was very good just by itself. Next time I will try the lemon version.
