Strawberries are soft, sweet, juicy, bright red berries. A cake out of it is simply delicious and nutritious!!
Since Iam from Thoothukudi near to Tirunelveli, Iam grown up by eating bakery foods. So I bake a lot now. We are definitely cake lover’s!! Sometimes I can’t wait for the cake to cool down. This is one such recipe!!
Regarding Strawberry Cake, my daughter always prefers cakes made out of fruits. So she was after me for this cake. And she gave the idea too!!
I have used my basic, simple vanilla cake recipe along with strawberries just I have used sour cream instead of milk. Sour cream gives soft, moist cakes. If you don’t have sour cream, replace with plain Greek Yougurt or Plain thick Natural Yougurt. It gives the same result.
Normally I don’t bake with all-purpose flour. I always use wheat flour and I use only brown sugar for baking. But you can use all-purpose flour and white sugar too.
This recipe is very easy to bake and it requires very less ingredients. It was completely baked by my daughter and I had to ask her to move everytime when I had to click pictures. But the cleaning part was done by me.
This cake is very sweet, juicy to eat . Lemon Zest, I have used along with strawberries gives a very rich aroma. You can replace it with vanilla essence too.
This cake is best for Valentine’s day , anniversary day ,your spouse birthday or any other intimate days. But always there is no reason required when it comes to bake a cake!! So let’s bake it!!
