Baked strawberry cake

Hello dears! Well somehow I don’t seem to be able to update my blog with new recipes as often as I would like so this one took some time. But I will try my best to post at least something every month. Summer here actually starts today but I can’t see much of it. It is raining for the last days, it’s cold and windy and feels more like fall. Not really the summer I was looking for. Well I guess I am kind of spoiled after the amazing weather in California. What can I say I miss California with its sunny blue skies and nice sugary beaches. Sigh…will I ever return there. Let’s see what future holds in for us. Now coming to today’s recipes. This cake is very simple and came together as I had lots of strawberries at home and wanted to make a cake. Usually strawberries are not baked in a cake but rather distributed fresh on top of soft yellow cake but I was in mood for some twist to that. The strawberry puree gives the batter a nice colour and the cake turned out very fluffy and moist. I didn’t add so much sugar to the cake as I didn’t want to overpower the sweetness of the strawberries. If you prefer your cake sweeter you can add more sugar. Have a nice day!!!


- ½ cup sugar
- 1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- pinch salt
- 1 cup strawberry puree ( made from fresh strawberries )
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tsp. baking powder
- ½ Tsp. baking soda
- 1 Tsp. vanilla essence
- handful fresh strawberries


Preheat oven to 350 F / 180 C and grease a 9-inch round cake form.
In a large bowl beat the sugar and oil till creamy, then add the eggs, one at a time and mix. Add in vanilla essence and mix. In another bowl combine flour, baking powder and soda and salt. Add the mixture alternately with the strawberry puree until combined. Fill the batter into the cake form and then distribute the fresh strawberries on top. Bake for about one hour. Let cool on a wire rack. Text and photographs are copyright protected. Copyright © Masalaflavour.blogspot.com 2009-2011. All rights reserved.
