Strawberry cake: santafesina delight

The town of Coronda is the National Capital of La Frutilla. I learned to make a dessert with one of the famous products of the Santafesino interior.


The city of Santa Fe de  Corond a is known as the National Capital of La Strawberry.  It is precisely the venue of the  National Strawberry Festival  , which usually takes place on the first weekend of November. He has it well earned by the mote: seven million kilos of strawberry are produced in Coronda a year. This accounts for approximately  45 percent of all domestic production .

The traditional celebration had its first edition in 1946, at the behest of the Farmers' Cooperative Society. Twelve years later, a decree of the Executive Branch, then by   Arturo Frondizi , officially instituted the National Holiday  on October 9. Today it takes place a month later, lasts three days and a Queen is still being chosen, although this must no longer be a must be corondina.

Thus,  in the  summer of Santafesino , it is very common to eat  all kinds of desserts with the strawberries of Coronda as main stars. Strawberry cake is one of the delicacies that can be made  with this tasty fruit . Learn how to prepare it
