– 4 cups all-purpose flour – 2 tablespoons baking powder – 2 teaspoons salt – 2 tablespoons brown sugar – ¼ cup granulated sugar – 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, cold – 2 cups heavy cream – 2 tablespoons vanilla – 1 egg for egg wash – Turbinado sugar for sprinkling Strawberries – 3 cups chopped fresh or frozen strawberries (thawed if using frozen) – ¼ cup granulated sugar (or to taste)
Start by stirring together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and then adding the wet: eggs, milk, oil, butter, and vanilla.
Then you stir in boiling water that has been poured over used coffee grinds. This does not make the cake taste like coffee, I promise. What it does is similar to what salt does to soups or any food.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove pans from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pans to wire racks and cool completely.
