Strawberry puree layer cake

Strawberry puree layer cake

Tiina from My Berry Forest
Strawberry puree layer cake: a pillowy creamy sponge cake filled with strawberries. Dairy-free, egg-free and delicious! I used a 11 x 7 inch brownie pan to bake this. Note: If you're using a bigger or smaller cake pan the baking time might be different.
