Strawberry Cake

This strawberry cake is not made with Jell-o or food coloring so don’t be surprised when it comes out of the oven and is not bright pink. This cake still packs a mean strawberry kick. The top of the cake does not dome and the crumb is very tender due to the amount of fruit preserve and fresh fruit. Add a layer of jam between layers or in the center of the cupcake and top with a delicious whipped cream frosting to really capture the lightness of the crumb.


Recipe Details

  • Yield: 9.5 cups (65 ounces) or two 8-inch rounds
  • Course:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter or oil baking pan, line bottom of pan with parchment paper; butter paper and dust baking pan with flour, tapping out any excess. Set aside.
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl, and set aside.
  3. Combine buttermilk, and vanilla extract in another bowl, and set aside.
  4. Beat butter, oil, and sugar in a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and cream until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  5. Reduce speed and add whole eggs one at a time, scraping down mixer bowl between each addition. Mix until combined.
  6. Add strawberry jam and diced strawberries on low speed until incorporated.
  7. On low speed, add dry ingredients in three batches, alternating with the buttermilk mixture. Starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Be careful not to over mix the batter.
  8. Pour batter into prepared pan(s), and smooth top with a spatula. Bake at 325 degrees until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean and the cake springs back when pressed lightly in the center, about 30-40 minutes.
  9. Transfer to a wire rack to cool before unmolding.
  10. To unmold, run a knife around the edge of the cake to loosen cake sides, invert cake to release from pan. Cool completely before decorating.

  4. Tracey Newton thank you for that tracey as im abit fed up with wasting ingredients trying new recipes for topping and they dont work out because of different measurements so here goes just want a couple of nice toppings not that sweet no one like them but watched buddy last night and lets say here i am lol :)

  5. Very yummy cake, next time I'll use 3-9" pans as the baking time took way too long and it overflowed.

  6. You can use plain/regular flour instead of cake flour. You will just get a slightly heavier crumb.

  7. Julie Homer It is ok if your cup size is slightly different. As long as you measure everything with the same cup, it keeps the ratio between ingredients the same.

  8. Cake flour just has some of the protein removed from it so it is lighter than all purpose flour. If you must sift your flour the texture of the cake wont be effected.
