On his birthday, along with a yummy breakfast, I also treated my dad to a delightful strawberry cake.
Fluffy, light, and filled with fresh strawberries this cake is sure to please. And it’s eggless too!
I wasn’t totally sure about this cake when I decided to make it. I had originally planned on an angel food cake, but then bailed at the last minute because I was unable to find the correct pan.
I needed another cake recipe, and fast. This particular one caught my eye simply because it was pretty. Im a sucker for some beautiful food. Lucky for me, this cake tasted just as good as it looked!
Strawberry Cake – original recipe can be found here
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 1-3/4 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2/3 cup Sugar
- 1-1/2 tbsp cane sugar (you can use regular sugar too)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup yogurt, mixed with some water
- 1 (or maybe a bit more) cups thinly sliced fresh strawberries
In all honesty, I shouldnt really be surprised that this cake was as delicious as it was. After all, it had fresh strawberries which I am absolutely in love with.
Dad ate some cake too, making me very happy because I always like to think that someone enjoyed what I created. Also, it would stink to have a cake you didn’t like on your birthday, so I’m glad he enjoyed it.
If you like fruit cakes, this is a must. The juicy strawberries moisten the cake and make it just the right amount gooey. You can even try the same recipe with a different fruit if your not a total strawberry lover.
I’d love to hear about your experiments!
