pardon the quality of the pictures (left my camera at the office) - these are hp pics ;(
Top n Bottom: the person who received this ~ said ~ melts in the mouth
Above: the person who received this - okay lah
Above: DH ate one piece between spoonfuls of his morning oats - so so lah
Me ask DH: did you eat any cake for tea? 
Oh... sure he did - the container was empty when I got home the first day it was in the fridge...
hence I had to bring out the last six pieces from the freezer!
(above: see the frozen strawberries in my hidden stash!?)
so gonna bake this again with blueberries!

The recipe for this awesome cake is available at the host's place ie

My notes (I baked the full recipe below):
8oz cream cheese at room temperature
117gm unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar (I used 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup fresh milk
2 large eggs
1tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
roughly 3 cups frozen strawberries: sliced and tossed in 1tbsp cake flour
slightly less than 1/4 cup soft brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts

ps:  I also baked apple pies with store bought puff pastry (this pack was
the latest of at least 5 which I bought and threw away - cos I did not have
the courage to handle puff pastry!) aiyoh - so easy leh!
oh! of course I baked Lena's Wholegrain Bread!
 the very last slice
