1-1/2 cup Flour
3 T.s.  Cornstarch
1/2 t.s. salt
1 t.s. Baking Soda
9 T.s.  Unsalted Butter, Softened
1-1/2 cup Sugar
3 eggs 
1 cup Greek yogurt  at room temperature
1 teaspoon Vanilla

For the Icing:

250 gr.  Cream Cheese at Room Temperature
250 gr.  Unsalted Butter
680 gr. powdered Sugar, Sifted
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 a kilo  Strawberries


Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and corn starch.
Cream 9 tablespoons butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well each time.
Add sour cream and vanilla and mix until combined.
Add sifted dry ingredients and mix on low speed until just barely combined.
Pour into greased and floured 8-inch cake pan. Bake at 180 degreesCelcius  for 45 to 50 minutes.
Remove from cake pan as soon as you pull it out of the oven, and place on a cooling rack and allow it to cool completely.

Stem strawberries and slice them in half from bottom to top. Place into a bowl and sprinkle with 3 tablespoons sugar. Stir together and let sit for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, mash the strawberries in two batches. Sprinkle each half with 1 tablespoons sugar and allow to sit for another 30 minutes.

Make icing: combine cream cheese, 2 sticks butter, sifted powdered sugar, vanilla, and dash of salt in a mixing bowl. Mix until very light and fluffy.
Slice cake in half through the middle. Spread strawberries evenly over each half (cut side up), pouring on all the juices. Place cake halves into the freezer for five minutes, just to make icing easier.
Remove from freezer. Use a little less than 1/3 of the icing to spread over the top of the strawberries on the bottom layer. Place the second layer on top. Add half of the remaining icing to the top spreading evenly, then spread the remaining 1/3 cup around the sides.
Garnish with strawberry halves.
