My Grandma gave me all of her old community cookbooks. They are absolutely amazing - full of home cooking, home recipes + the sweetest memories from years ago. I love reading them. I feel so connected to my Grandma and to the food that raised me. This recipe was actually for an apple cake, and weirdly, contained no sugar… - I gave it a 2024 upgrade with strawberries, sesame seeds and…sugar. 

2 cups flour 

2 cups sugar 

1 cup white sesame seeds (I threw in about ¼ cup black sesame seeds bc I had them on hand…) 

1 tsp salt 

1 ½ tsp baking powder

1 cup neutral oil - canola is best here 

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla bean paste 

1 pint strawberries - chopped 

Preheat oven to 350 

Mix all of the dry together with a whisk. Add in the wet, beating it together until it’s smooth. Fold in the strawberries. 

Spread into a greased 9x13. Bake for about 1 hour - checking at 45 minutes. Once the top does not sink down and a knife comes out clean it is all set!
