When I asked my daughters what they would like in their lunch box for morning tea this week my youngest decided on Strawberry Cake. I didn't have a recipe for one so decided to create one. I am not a fan of fake strawberry flavour so this is perfect. I also love that you can leave the strawberry leaves on (they have great health benefits!) and you would never know you are eating them. We are all really enjoying this moist, delicious cake for morning tea (and some of us for afternoon tea too - shhhhh!!) Eb x
- 100g grapeseed oil
- 250g fresh strawberries (leave the leaves on!)
- 200g natural yoghurt
- 150g caster sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 300g Self Raising Flour
Preheat oven to 160 deg and line a large loaf tin or cake tin.
Add strawberries to the bowl and blitz on Speed 7 for 5 seconds. Add oil, yoghurt, sugar and eggs and mix on Speed 7 for 10 seconds. Scrape down sides and repeat if necessary.
Add flour and mix on Speed 5 for 10 seconds, scrape and repeat if necessary.
Pour into the cake tin and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Top with vanilla buttercream.
