It's time for this month's Secret Recipe Club reveal and this month I was assigned to the blog An Affair From The Heart.  I squealed with delight when I opened the email in May that said this was the blog I got to cook from this time around!  You see, Michaela was assigned MY blog last month to cook from and I was so excited to pay the wonderful comments and reviews she gave me forward!  

Michaela is a stay at home mom to 4 kids and is married to the love of her life for over two decades now.  As I read Michaela's "about page" it was uncanny exactly how much we had in common!  I knew once I started browsing her recipes, it was going to be a tough choice for me to narrow it down to one recipe.  We both seem to like many of the same kinds of recipes!  Michaela and I have sort of "known" each other for some time now through mutual blog sharing groups.  I've always loved Michaela's recipe choices and have drooled more than once over the recipes she shares, but I have never had the opportunity to dive into her blog and make something from it. 

So I started making a list of recipes to make from her site.  When I was done, I had 20 or so recipes that I wanted to try!  HAHA  But...since I can only present ONE recipe today, I decided to go with this extraordinarily delicious strawberry cake recipe.  It's called Strawberry Cake on her blog. Micheala explains that this is a cake recipe that she received from a friend.  (Aren't those the best kind of recipes?)  She does frost her version, and you can find the recipe for the strawberry frosting HERE. I knew I didn't want to frost my cake but  I couldn't decide if I wanted to just dust my cake with powdered sugar or glaze it, so I just did both!

Let me tell you, we LOVED this cake!  It is just bursting with BIG strawberry flavor and that color...OH MY....just gorgeous!  I also love that this cake starts with a boxed mix.  I am a huge fan of doctoring up boxed cake mixes and turning them from ordinary into something extraordinary and this cake recipe does exactly that. 

I did reduce the oil, increase the fruit, and use Sugar Free gelatin mix in this recipe, which is a little different from the original.  I also did not frost this cake with the frosting Michaela used.  I made these changes to make this recipe a little more diet friendly.  This cake will be making more appearances at my house in the future!  I also will be finding some time to make a few other recipes from An Affair From the Heart....like Grandma's Baked Beans, Grown Up Orange Julius, and Crock Pot French Onion French Dip Sandwiches in the upcoming weeks and put a dent in that long list of "must make" recipes I made!  

Thank you Michaela for such a great recipe.  I am looking forward to making more yumminess from your lovely blog!

  6. Renee, I left you a big long comment last night! I wonder where it went?? :( Let's try this AGAIN! First off, I know EXACTLY what you mean about having similar tastes and ideas. When I made this cake, I was thinking about making a bundt cake --- I LOVE what you did here, the lightening up, the glaze and the powdered sugar dusting. It looks SO PRETTY! I am so glad I have "met" you through our shared interests, and I look forward to many fun recipes to come! :) Thank you for every kind word you have said here, It means the world to me!

    1. I have no idea what's up with the vanishing comments. I've had people say it happens occasionally, so I'm glad you came back and left another one. Sorry! Anyway, thank you Michaela! We did love this cake and I think next time, I'll be trying it with the frosting...lol I'm sure it will be a hit both ways! I'm looking forward to making more of your recipes!
