I'm pleased to percentage this scrumptious homemade Strawberry Cake with you! clean strawberries are pureed then cooked right down to create the most delicious strawberry sauce that is then combined right into a thick cake batter.

The cake is topped with a fluffy buttercream frosting leaving you with a tasty, moist and velvety cake from scratch!


I am so obsessed with this cake batter that I may want to actually drink it. It’s clean, creamy and so tasty. It’s infused with fresh strawberry puree and natural vanilla extract to offer it that scrumptious strawberry taste. some dabs of purple meals coloring are used to present it that infant pink shade.

Let’s chat about that strawberry puree I’ve cited. this stuff is downright splendid. Any sauce tastes a lot higher while it’s cooked down. Cooked down? Why, what do you mean? I imply slowly simmering if for a long term (in this example, approximately half-hour) until it reduces down and get’s first-rate thick. while you do that, taste develops.
