Rustic Strawberry Cake back with a new cake...a strawberry cake...something different than my usual bakes...worth the try and tasted's the recipe..slightly  modified from Martha Stewart's Strawberry Cake ;)

Ingredients :

1 1/2 cups cake flour or all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated brown sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
1 large egg
1/2 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 pound strawberries, halved or quartered

Method :
Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C. Prepare a 10 inch (25 cm)  pie or tart pan.
Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside. Beat butter and 3/4 cup sugar in a bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy, 3 minutes. Add in egg, buttermilk, vanilla and lemon zest. Add flour and mix to combine without over-mixing. Spread batter in the prepared dish. Arrange strawberries, cut-side down, on top of the batter, gently pressing to partially submerge. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.
