You must be wondering that though it has strawberry puree inside it, then why is it not pink in colour. That is because we have not added any food colour to our batter. But, if you prefer, you may add a few drops of pink/red food colour. But we suggest to keep it natural as the way it is.
Some Tips and Suggestions:
Baking time depends on your convection. We suggest you remain alert after 25 minutes.
You may bake for a few more minutes if cake is not ready.
Either grease the tin with oil/butter and dust it with flour. Second way is to spread oil/butter and then line it with parchment paper/baking sheet and again apply oil/butter on the paper.
All the ingredients to be used, should be at room temperature.
1/3 cup powdered sugar + 1 teaspoon powdered sugar to sprinkle on strawberries before baking
¼ cup butter
¼ cup curd
¼ cup strawberry puree (3 to 4 strawberries, blended to a pulp)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
8-10 strawberries, halved
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Wash and clean strawberries. Cut 8-10 strawberries into half.
Take about 4 strawberries in a mixer jar and blend to a puree.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl. Keep it aside.
In a wide bowl, combine the butter and 1/3 cup sugar. Whisk well with a beater until light and fluffy.
Now add curd, strawberry puree and vanilla essence and mix well.
Now add the flour mixture gradually and gently stir until everything gets mixed well.
Pour the batter into a greased cake tin and arrange the halved strawberries on top of the batter.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon powdered sugar over the strawberries and bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for about 30-40 minutes. Be alert and check after 25 minutes. Baking time will vary for every Convection.
Remove from oven and insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, cake is ready. If it doesn’t come out clean, bake for a few more minutes.
Let it cool completely. Remove on a plate.
Serve and enjoy this delectable Strawberry Cake.
