  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

Method

Cake: Line 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) metal cake pan with parchment paper or grease; set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in orange rind and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt ; stir into butter mixture alternately with milk, making 3 additions of flour mixture and 2 of milk. Scrape into prepared pan.

Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on rack. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap and store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)

Filling: Meanwhile, in bowl, combine strawberries, sugar and orange rind and juice; let stand, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
