Strawberry Upside-Down Cake

My daughter gave me a huge bag of frozen strawberries that she was not going to use. I’m not really a fan of strawberries myself, but of course I couldn’t let them go to waste. A friend of mine is dieting with me and she was craving dessert so I made this for her. The texture of the cake is similar to a tart rather than a cake.

    Can I omit the marshmallows?

      I don’t think it would come out the same if you did omit the marshmallows.

What's on your mind?
