Fresh Strawberry cake
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.
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.
