After that, mix together in a separate bowl:
3/4 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
Sprinkle that over the top of the cake dough you have on the strawberries.
NOTE: I put tin foil under my cakes after the first fiasco with it boiling over.
If you use this cake recipe with things like rhubarb, I add more boiling water over the top of it ... 1/2 - 1 cup, depending on the size of the baking dish.
