Fresh Strawberry cake

Strawberry cake from eatgood4life.com

Do you want a simple and luxurious strawberry cake that you can enjoy with hardly any work? This is it.

You pretty much just have to mix all of the batter ingredients and bake it. Then just mix the Greek yogurt, and sugar with heavy cream and top with the fresh strawberries. This strawberry cake is not complicated at all, I promise!!

I got the recipe from my coconut and lime cake I made a while back and decreased the sugar content even further, so it is a little bit better for you!! I hate when all you can taste is the sugar on cakes, cookies, and any baking goods for that matter. The best way to control this is by baking yourself from scratch and this cake could be a great place to start :-) Just saying!!

By the way have you seen the weight of a nation series that started on HBO on Monday night? I love it. Very inspiring, powerful and shocking to some. This is a very powerful and informative documentary that I highly recommend for every one to watch. I wish I could show it to everyone I know :-)

Anyhow, let me know if you try this simple and yummy cake. It is to die for.

Enjoy!!

I used 1 teaspoon of marmalade reduced with a teaspoon of water to glaze the strawberries to give them a bit of a shine. You don’t have to do this but they just look prettier!!

So after cooling the cake you can place the heavy cream and Greek yogurt mixture over the cake followed by the chopped strawberries and serve. It is that simple :-)

I think you can do any other fruit you like. Fresh raspberries and blueberries will work really good for this!!

This is a very yummy cake and not that sweet at all. The cake batter only has 1/2 cup unrefined sugar. The Greek yogurt and heavy cream mixture has 4 tablespoons.

Fresh Strawberry cake

Yield: 8-10 servings

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking soda
1/2 cup olive oil, minus two tablespoons
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unrefined sugar
2 eggs
Topping
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup low fat Greek Yogurt
4 tablespoons unrefined sugar, or maple syrup
2 cups organic fresh strawberries cut in half

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

In a mixing bowl, I use a wire whisk to do this, combine eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract and oil. Add flour, baking soda and baking powder.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until golden, 40-50 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 20-30 minutes, then turn onto a cooling wire rack and cool completely.

In a bowl whip the heavy cream with the sugar until you get firm peaks. Fold in the Greek Yogurt. Spoon this mixture over the cake and place strawberries on top.
Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

    I love the topping! Just today I was thinking of some kind of light topping to make something layered. It looks so fresh and pretty and perfect. I still have to try the lime version!

    I am so excited about this!! Your toppings looks delicious, but I’ve been looking for a plain whole wheat cake just like this. It looks fantastic and I can’t wait to try it out :D

    Fabulous recipe Miryam…. I’m about to try it this week for my husband’s birthday – seems perfect for us right now, as we’re trying to avoid as much sugar as we can and still eat some! ;) One question: any substitute for soy milk? He doesn’t like the taste very much, unless you really can’t taste it at all? Thanks!!

    Purvi, you can use regular milk if you like. Let me know how you guys like it. I actually made it again two days ago for a friends BBQ. A big hit!!

    I made the cake and it turned out yummy!!! Used regular fat-free milk instead of Soy, and also added one spoonful of Strawberry preserves to the batter, just to add a little pink to the cake! Thanks for the easy-to-make recipe!

    Made this today but replaced the topping with your raspberry chia seed jam by cutting cooled cake in half adding the jam and sandwiching together then topped with a dusting of icing sugar. Whole family loved!

    • Miryam@eatgood4life — November 1st, 2014 @ 1:25 pm

      Oh wow, I have no idea. The cake has both baking powder and baking soda so I have no clue what could have been the problem. So sorry :-(
