Recipe: Homemade Strawberry Cake

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Baking Time: 25-30 minutes
Total Time: 45-50 minutes
Serving Size: 8-10 servings


For the cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and finely chopped

For the strawberry cream cheese frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and pureed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional toppings:

  • Fresh strawberries, sliced
  • Mint leaves (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans or line them with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in the finely chopped strawberries, being careful not to overmix.
  7. Divide the cake batter evenly between the prepared pans. Smooth the tops with a spatula.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  9. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the strawberry cream cheese frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy.
  11. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  12. Add the pureed strawberries and vanilla extract. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy.
  13. Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a generous amount of strawberry cream cheese frosting on top.
  14. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the entire cake with the remaining frosting.
  15. If desired, garnish the cake with fresh strawberry slices and mint leaves.
  16. Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld.
  17. Slice and serve the delicious homemade strawberry cake, enjoying the moist and fruity goodness.

Note: Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

Enjoy your homemade strawberry cake!
