How to Make This Strawberry Lemonade Cake

Cake Batter

Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. You want the paper to slightly overhang on the sides, this allows you to lift the cake easily from the pan.

Wash, haul, and slice strawberries into thin slices. Set aside.

In a large bowl or a stand mixer with the paddle attachment on beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy (usually take about 3 minutes). Add eggs one at a time and mix in completely before adding the next egg. You want this cake to be light and fluffy so after all eggs are added continue to mix for another 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. While continue to mix, add in 1/3 of the dry ingredients, half of the sour cream, another 1/3 of the dry ingredients, the rest of the sour cream, and finally the last of the dry ingredients.

Fold in the sliced strawberries. Add batter to your lined loaf pan bake for an hour or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

Strawberry Lemonade Glaze

Place chopped strawberries in a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue cooking the berries until they are soft enough to mash, about 3-5 minutes.

Once cooked, place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and squish the strawberries through. This leaves you with a strawberry puree which is free of seeds and large chunks. You should get about 2 tbsp of strawberry puree.

In a medium sized bowl add the strawberry puree, lemon juice, and powdered sugar. Mix until smooth and no lumps remain. If the mixture is too thick you can add a little more lemon juice. Drizzle the glaze over you cooled cake.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store the Bars

These bars should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. They keep well for three days after baking.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

What Kind of Oats Should I use?

You want to use rolled oats, sometimes called old fashioned oats. Using quick oats will not give the bars the correct texture .

Can I use Frozen Strawberries?

You want to use fresh strawberries for this recipe. If you only have frozen berries you will want to bring them to room temperature before using them.
