“This is my own recipe that I made up for my dear husband. He wanted something strawberry tasting for breakfast. So I put on my thinking cap and started baking. This tastes just like fresh strawberries b/c I didn't do anything except try to keep the berry flavor light and bright. It tastes like fresh berries to last piece. I hope you like it. (prep time and bake time are an estimate.)”
