Notes

Jean's Berry patch is a huge berry picking field in Apex, NC. This is the first place I went strawberry picking with my roommate, Betsy B. Quick. I didn't think I liked strawberries until she made me try them again. Then, I went and picked a huge bucket full!!! Since then, I have loved strawberries, and have loved this moist, delicious cake!
