Wait until you try the super simple strawberry sauce. It will make you want to lick your plate – it’s just THAT good! You will add it to your regular rotation for Dutch Baby Pancakes, waffles, Crepes, as a dip for soft French Bread.

Easy Strawberry Cake Recipe

This strawberry cake is winning in every way: simple ingredients, easy to make, perfect for entertaining, and completely yummy. Everything about this cake is good. This is a crowd-pleasing dessert, but (so you can’t say I didn’t warn you) it disappears fast!

This recipe is based on our wildly popular Blueberry Cake which was an instant hit and continues to be one of the top 5 recipes on our blog.

Strawberry Cake Ingredients

The ingredients here are pantry staples. This cake is loaded with fresh strawberries inside and out. Between the cake and sauce, you will need almost 2 pounds of strawberries.

The easy strawberry sauce has only 2 ingredients (strawberries and sugar) and comes together quickly in a food processor or blender. Add sugar to taste if you have very sweet or very tart strawberries.

Tools you will need

This recipe comes together fast with simple ingredients and basic cooking tools. For best results, be sure to use an electric mixer to whip the eggs and sugar.

Our Best Baking Tips

  • Use room temperature eggs – To bring eggs to room temperature quickly, place cold eggs into a bowl of warm water (not hot) for 5-7 minutes, then dry with paper towels and use in the recipe.
  • Do not over-mix – This is KEY! Once the flour is incorporated, stop mixing or the cake can become dense.
  • Measure flour correctly – spoon flour into a dry ingredient measuring cup and scrape off the top with a straight edge. Why? Pushing your measuring cup into the flour bin can result in up to 25% more compacted flour. Watch our easy video tutorial on how to measure correctly.

Common Questions:

Can I Substitute Sour Cream?

Yes! You can substitute sour cream with a plain Greek yogurt. Whole milk Greek yogurt will yield the best results.

Can I substitute a different fruit?

You can substitute a different berry or even sliced stone fruit. See our list of “Easy Cakes” below for inspiration.

Can I turn this into a 2-layer cake?

This works best as a single layer because it is a heavier cake. For a layered cake, we recommend our 2-Layer Strawberry Cake.

How to Make this Gluten Free?

A reader shared this: “I used Cup4Cup Gluten-Free Multipurpose Flour. It is expensive but the best I’ve tried so far. Anyway, the cake came out great. We loved it and I’m planning to make it again for Easter. Just wanted to let any possible gluten intolerant folks know.”

Can I make this Dairy Free?

A reader shared the following: “I completely replaced the sour cream, with whole fat coconut milk from a can. I mixed it completely before measuring, and to compensate for the added wetness I reduced the oil to about 1/3 cup. It was still a little runny, but the bake was perfect.”

Can I use a different sized pan?

We have only tested this in a 9″ springform pan. If baking in a smaller pan, you will need to bake a little longer or until a toothpick comes out clean. If you experiment with various sizes, please let me know in the comments.

Ingredients

Strawberry Cake Ingredients:

Strawberry Sauce Ingredients:

  • 16 oz strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar, or to taste

Instructions

Cake Prep:

  1. Butter a 9" springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Prepare 12 oz of strawberries for the cake: dice 6 oz of strawberries and slice the second 6 oz into halves.

How to Make Strawberry Cake:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer (or stand mixer), beat together 2 eggs with 1 cup sugar on high speed for 5 minutes or until light in color and thick.

  2. Add 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup oil, 1 tsp vanilla and beat on low speed until well combined.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together: 2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt until well incorporated. With the mixer on med/low speed, add flour mixture to the batter 1/3 at a time, letting the flour incorporate with each addition and continue mixing just until well combined. Do not over-mix. 

  4. Pour half of the batter into prepared pan. Top with 6 oz of diced strawberries then spread remaining batter over the top. Cover the surface with 6 oz of halved strawberries (cut-side-down), pressing them down just slightly into the batter. Bake at 375˚F for 45-55 minutes (mine was perfect at 50 min), or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cake rest in pan 15-20 min before removing the ring.

  5. Run a thin spatula around cake edges to loosen from pan. then transfer to a cake platter. Cool until just warm or at room temperature. To serve, dust with powdered sugar if desired. Drizzle individual slices generously with strawberry syrup.

How to Make Strawberry Sauce:

  1. While the cake is baking, make the strawberry sauce: In a blender or food processor, combine 16 oz strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar (or add sugar to taste) and blend until pureed.

Recipe Notes

*To measure flour correctly: spoon flour into dry ingredients measuring cup and scrape off the top with a straight edge.

      You can freeze the cake layers and assemble them later. that would be a better option.

    Hi Natasha, I of course recognize this cake from my childhood, Charlottka I think it was called ? My mother would usually make it with apples, and I have tried it with peaches – it’s so great , thanks for sharing it with the world, and adding your special touch to it ! I have not been making it much lately to be honest because it is so reach, but it always been my favorite. I wonder if adjustments such as redusing sugar amount would ruin it , have you ever tried using less then a whole cup of sugar ? Also I noticed you use oil instead of butter that I am used to in the original recipe – does it matter which one to use?

    Thank you,

    I’m one of those people who sees strawberries on sale and buys two containers…now what?!? Yesterday I was thinking about what to do with them, and came across your recipe. The cake is tender, very moist , full of fruit and gorgeous to look at. My husband came home and immediately asked what that great aroma was. After dinner I brought him a largish piece, to which he said “I can’t eat all of this!” Huh… the next thing I knew there were just a few crumbs left!
    I will definitely make this delicious cake again, and might try it in muffin form. Thank you so much!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩

    I just made it with freshly picked strawberries last weekend. It was a hit! I like the balance of the sweetness from the batter + strawberries and the slight sourness from strawberries. Thanks Natasha! I used a 9-inch square cast iron pan and added toasted almond slices to add some crunchiness.

    If I wanted to make this cake in a 9×13, is that messing with measurements & time to bake then? Maybe I should double the recipe and adjust the time? OR should I find me a spring form pan? lol…love your bubbly personality!

      Hi Ann Marie! I haven’t made it in a 9×13 pan myself. Some of my readers have reported great results using a 9×13 pan, and I can only assume they did use parchment paper. I would look at a cake conversion chart to help, based on my research a 9×13 inch pan holds 14-16 cups of batter, essentially the same as 2 9×2-inch round pans. If you use this recipe for the 9×13” pan, the cake layer may be too thin. I hope that helps. Let us know your experiment.

      Hi Jessica, that’s right! The cornstarch helps the blueberries stay put, helps with sinking, and does not bleed into the recipe, but you’re welcome to omit it. Several of our readers say it works well without it also.

    Hi Natasha,

    I have been making this cake for over 1 year now, and we all love it every time! I love how the strawberries ooze a little to make the surrounding cake moist and delicious with their juiciness. I can dress it up with powdered sugar, and the strawberry syrup, like you suggest, or keep it simple without anything extra on top, and it is still delicious.
    I made this cake yesterday. Afterwards, I was talking with my kids about my mother’s cooking – we all think she is an amazing cook – and my 8-year old daughter said in a very matter-of-factly way, “mom, you’re a really good cook, too.” I never imagined anyone would ever say this about me, because with work, I feel I don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to cooking, but to have my child say this really touched my heart. And it is because of your recipes! Your website is my go-to because I know whatever recipe I try, it will turn out delicious every time. Thank you for making me look like a good cook to my kids 🙂

      Hi Sana! Did you use a different size pan by chance or make any substitutions? If not, it sounds like it could be the oven not baking evenly. Make sure the oven is fully preheated and I would recommend an internal oven thermometer to see if your oven temperature is right. You may need to adjust the temperature or baking time. I hope this helps.

I had friends for lunch and we all really enjoyed it and they thought the strawberry sauce was “fancy”! Although I was a little thrown by the consistency, (I should have noticed by the pictures that it isn’t a light cake), it really is delightful.

It was gummy except for where there were gaps between the strawberres. I pushed them into the batter as directed. I had to leave it in the oven for well over and hour. Just wondering if you could give me some feedback because I’d make it again except for that!!

      Hi Laximi, I am not sure I understand the question, do you mean low-fat sour cream or less sugar? I have not tested low-fat sour cream but it may work. One of my other readers used low-fat Greek yogurt and it was a success. Regarding the sugar, the recipe relies on this for the eggs to fluff up nicely and become thick. You’d have to experiment to see what the results are if you want to use less. I hope this helps.

      Hi Chasity, I haven’t tried freezing it, but here is what one of our readers said “Just for anyone asking about freezing. I tried it, and it wasn’t as good, the strawberries don’t freeze terribly well. It was still good, though.” hope this helps.

        I wanted to send an update on my freezing experience with this cake. I actually had great results! The cake tasted wonderful and the fruit on the top didn’t look any different than before. I also wanted to point out that once you sprinkle the powder sugar top you don’t even see the strawberries. I would definitely freeze again! Saves time and taste the same as freshly baked!

      Hi Andrea, I hope it all works out! gluten-free is not always a 1:1 substitution though with baking being such a science. One of my readers shared the following great review: “I used Cup4Cup Gluten-Free Multipurpose Flour. It is expensive but the best I’ve tried so far. Anyway, the cake came out great. We loved it and I’m planning to make it again for Easter. Just wanted to let any possible gluten intolerant folks now.” Let me know if you experiment making this a gluten-free strawberry cake!

    Do you think if I replace the strawberries with canned pineapple, the recipe will work ? Or will it get dry as pineapple will have less moisture than fresh strawberries? Pls pls suggest!

      Hi Nora, I haven’t tested it with frozen strawberries, so I’m not 100% sure. If I were to try, I would thaw in the refrigerated and drain well before adding them, maybe toss them with 1 Tbsp of corn starch to keep them from being too juicy. I do, however, think it would be easy to substitute frozen for the sauce.

    I never write reviews but this cake was just too good. So moist and delicious and the amount of sugar was so perfect and not too sweet. I didn’t even try the sauce yet! And I ate 3 slices. This is a dangerously good cake.

    I didn’t have sour cream so used yoghurt instead. Worked out great. Had to bake for a bit longer, covered the top with foil so the top doesn’t brown too much.

      Hi Jennifer, It is best on day one and should be refrigerated if not eaten the same day. I have enjoyed this up to 3 days in the fridge after making it but it has never lasted longer than that.

        Hi Natasha,
        I tried to make this cake twice and both times it was a disaster! The first time, I used 50%reduced fat sour cream and an 8” pan. The cake didn’t rise and it felt more like a flan. I tried it again with normal sour cream, again with an 8in pan, and that somehow made no difference.
        The cake just didn’t rise properly in the middle. It didn’t cook all the way through in 55 minutes, then I added at least another 35 minutes in 10 minute steps, but it was burnt on the sides and not fully baked in the middle.
        This was my biggest cake disaster – it was my sons birthday and he wanted a strawberry cake and chose this particular recipe but I just couldn’t get it right. I’ve taken a picture but I can’t upload it here!

          Hi Inshra, if the cake did not rise, you might check that your leavening is still active. Also, avoid overmixing which can cause it to become dense.

    Natasha,

    I noticed on the picture that the cake edges look a bit darker than the rest of the cake. I used to have the same problem when I would make a sharlotka and especially on my lemon blueberry cakes.

    I started using Wilton’s Bake Even Strips and they help a lot!! The sides are soft and moist and the cake bakes more evenly!

    Delicious!!! Have made it twice in 2 days for 2 different gatherings. With the oven we used today, the next time we will have to cover it with aluminum foil the last 10 minutes as at 50 minutes the toothpick wasn’t clean and we put it back in until it was ok inside (but the edges browned too much).

      Hi A, I haven’t seen that happen before. Did you make sure to beat the eggs and sugar adequately – for the cake to rise and bake up properly, it relies on the volume of the eggs and sugar to rise. Also, you might double-check that your oven is heating adequately.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with using the cup4cup – I wonder if maybe it didn’t work because of measuring? Be sure to spoon it into the measuring cup and level off the top. If you push the cup into the measuring container, you can get up to 25% too much compressed flour. I hope that helps.
