Eggless Strawberry Cake

 

A kids’ favourite! A beautiful looking moist strawberry cake is something both kids and adults will love. Agree?

It may look difficult to make but you will see that it is not. Also, this is one of those “little” cake recipes which is perfect for a small family.

 

Let’s see what do you need for making this scrumptious cake.

Ingredients & Substitutions

You will need these ingredients:

  1. All-purpose Flour: You can substitute upto 50% of flour with whole-wheat flour. There may be a slight change in texture after this substitution.
  2. Leavening: This recipe uses only baking soda. You need not add baking powder to the recipe.
  3. Butter: Using butter will impart fresh and rich flavour and texture. Use unsalted butter. If using salted one, skip the added salt.
  4. Fresh Strawberries: Have any “ugly-looking” strawberries? or few over-ripe ones sitting in the refrigerator? Use all of those in making this cake. Sour strawberries work perfectly too.
  5. Milk: Do not substitute this with water otherwise your cake will not rise. If you do not have milk, use the same amount of thick buttermilk (same consistency).

 

If you want to make this cake with eggs, I have a recipe on the blog whose link I have shared at the end of the post.
