Strawberry Cake Recipe

My son, like every other child,  is fond of cakes and pastries. Whenever he watches TV or finds cake pictures in news paper he start requesting for cakes. So, I decided to try my hand at baking a cake, and the result was better than I had expected. Every now and then I try to bake different varieties of cake. Today I am sharing the recipe for strawberry cake in which I have used fresh strawberries which are first caramelized and then, used in the batter.
