Strawberry Cake...... Oh, not again!!

I wasn't prepared to post this Strawberry Cake..... must be bored of me keep making Strawberry Cake lately.  But anyway, still put it up to my blog here.

I loves the colour of this cake, rose red.  I was so impressed when I saw Grace post this Rose Bouquet Strawberry Birthday cake; of the piping out the rose frosting.  So beautiful.  Wish I can do that.....

Well, I just make it simple frosting on my cake.

Strawberry Cake
Adapted from Apron Of Grace

  • 1 & 1/4 cups Pureed Strawberries

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.  Grease and line 2  9" round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat butter with sugar for 3 minutes.
  3. Add egg yolks one at a time, then the vanilla, food coloring and strawberries, beat for another 3 minutes.
  4. Sift dry ingredients and add to butter/egg mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
  5. Mix just till combined.
  6. In another bowl and clean beaters, beat egg whites till stiff and add in an increment of 3 to cake batter, being sure to fold in thoroughly but gently.
  7. Pour batter equally to the 2 cake pans.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or till skewer comes out clean. 

For the Frosting, I used the same frosting from my Red Velvet Cake.
Cream Cheese Frosting
125g cream cheese
50g unsalted butter
80g icing sugar
1 cup fresh cream, whipped until stiff

1.  Beat cream cheese with butter until soft.
2.  Turn mixer to low speed, add icing sugar a little at a time, whisk until well

Overall the cake is moist inside.  Well, this cake is very suitable for a birthday cake if you wish to bake for someone birthday!!
