1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 cup plus 1 1/2-2 teaspoons sugar

2 tablespoons skim milk
1/2 cup applesauce
Grated rind of 1 lemon
2 cups diced strawberries

Stir in applesauce and lemon rind. Add flour mixture and stir to moisten dry ingredients. Do not overmix. Spoon batter into pan and top with strawberries. Mix remaining 1 1/2-2 teaspoons granulated sugar with brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over strawberries. Bake about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.
