Lemon-Almond Cake with Macerated Strawberries

No one wants to bake when it's hot out. Thankfully, this lemon-almond cake from The Seasonal Baker: Easy Recipes From My Home Kitchen To Make Year-Round can be made days ahead of time; its use of oil instead of butter gives it a longer shelf life. Keep the berries cold and the cake warm, and you've got a glorious dessert. Cake sandwich, anyone?
