This cake has the perfect combination of flavors, the strawberries really compliment the whipped cream and sponge!


The BEST treat you can have!

I will start off by saying that this cake is in no means healthy BUT why not treat yourself to an amazing baked good this weekend? We surely all deserve it! I love to eat a balanced diet consisting of nourishing foods and healthier desserts but I will definitely NOT feel guilty for enjoying many many slices of this delicious strawberry cream cake. For me, moderation is the key!

Ingredients in strawberry cream cake

I wouldn’t suggest changing anything in this recipe, keep the ingredients and measurements the same and you won’t be disappointed. However, you can make this cake dairy-free by using vegan butter and vegan whipping cream.

Use regular all-purpose flour for best results.

Use granulated sugar, butter, eggs and baking powder for the cake.

You will need whipping cream and obviously fresh strawberries!

Tools you will need to make this

You will need:

  • 2 cake pans or spring pan (I used a small one about 20cm)
  • 1 mixing bowl + hand mixer OR stand mixer
  • Spatula to mix

For measuring: 1/4 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 tbsp, 1/2 cup, 1 cup.
