The one thing that sets this strawberry cake apart? Minimize fresh strawberry puree and add to your best white cake batter.
This strawberry cake totally blew me away. After years of humble strawberry cupcakes from scratch, my expectations were pretty low. Time to savor the test of my efforts. Nibbling at the first light pink thorn was the moment of truth …
I cried tears of joy. Or were those real tears because I heated up every dish with all this test of strawberry cake recipe?
Let’s get down to business. Watch me make the recipe below:
I find it difficult to pack real strawberry flavor into a cake without a fake strawberry flavor crutch. My goal was to make a strawberry topping made entirely from real strawberries. We’re talking strawberry inside the cake and in frosting, too. With the help of freeze-dried strawberries, I tackled strawberry frosting. I’ll get to that below. But for a strawberry cake? Things have always been quite lackluster in the flavor and texture department.

Place an 18 cm circle on a baking tray lined with baking paper and fill it with about 1/4 of the dough. Bake for 12 minutes in a preheated oven at 6 ° C (180 ° C). Then repeat 3 more cakes. Let them cool down.
Then soften the gelatin with cold water. And mashing 3 strawberries also heat them in a little saucepan. Remove from heat and add the filtered gelatin. Chop the rest of the strawberries and mix them with mascarpone, sugar and the cooked strawberries.
