Homemade Strawberry Cake Recipe


I have more than just a homemade strawberry cake recipe from scratch, check out more easy cake recipes at the end of the page.

You'll love this strawberry cake recipe.  It produces a cake that is moist, fluffy and delicious; like heaven on a fork.  I offer two outstanding strawberry frosting recipes below.


Homemade Strawberry Cake Recipe

HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY CAKE FROM SCRATCH

2 cups white sugar
1 (3oz pkg) strawberry Jello
1 cup homemade unsalted butter, room temperature
4 eggs, room temperature
2-3/4 cup cake flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder



1 cup whole milk, room temperature
1 TBS pure vanilla extract

1 cup fresh strawberries, pureed
fresh strawberries, sliced for topping the cake
Easy Strawberry Frosting, recipe below

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Butter three 8 inch cake pans and dust the inside with flour and tap out excess. Line the bottom of the pans with wax or parchment paper. Put the cake pans on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

In two small bowls, separate the egg whites and the yolks. Whip the egg whites into soft peaks; set aside. Measure out 3 or so cups of the cake flour and sift. THEN measure out the 2-3/4 cups of flour needed for this recipe. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and jello until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks one at a time, mixing well.

Combine flour and baking powder; and stir in alternating with the milk. Blend in 1/2 cup of the strawberry puree and vanilla. Now fold in the egg whites.

Divide the batter evenly into the cake pans. I raise the cake pans about 8" to 1 foot from the counter and let it drop to remove the air bubbles.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool for 15 minutes and remove from the pans.

Place one of the cakes on your cake plate and before putting the other cake on top before frosting; spread the remaining 1/2 cup strawberry puree between the two cakes.


Easy Strawberry Frosting

1 stick butter, at room temperature
3-1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup strawberries, sliced

Whip the butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time; mixing for 1 minute after each addition. Stir in the strawberries. Now it's ready to frost the cake.

Slice some strawberries and place on the top of the frosting. Melt some chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over the strawberries. Delish. Beautiful presentation and tastes even better.

For this homemade strawberry cake recipe, I usually ice the with a fluffy and light frosting. You may use a whipped cream cheese frosting; both work beautifully. I have more cake frosting recipes if you want to take a peek (lemon frosting is another one to try).

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
