  • Electric Hand Beater
  • Microwave Convection Oven
  • electric mixer grinder


  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • Granulated Sugar (powdered in an electric mixer)
  • 0.7 cup Unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • tsp Vanilla essence
  • ¼ cup Full fat milk
  • ¾ cup Fresh strawberries (chopped)
  • 6 Strawberries (whole strawberry)
  • Mint leaves (for garnish)

Simple Whipped Cream frosting

  • 1 cup non dairy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp Icing sugar(confectioners sugar)


  • In a wide bowl beat room temperature butter and powdered granulated sugar together until it forms smooth creamy mixture.
  • To it, add room temperature egg and beat well. Make it a note, add one egg at a time, and beat on low speed.
  • To the wet ingredients, sieve al-purpose flour and baking powder together directly and beat until it is well combined.
  • To the cake batter add milk to loosen the batter.
  • Add 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and fold the batter gently using the cut and fold method.
  • Finally, add in luscious chopped strawberries to the cake batter and mix until it is evenly distributed in the batter.
  • Meanwhile preheat oven to 180 C (356F). Grease the mould with butter and line with a parchment paper. Transfer the cake batter to a square cake mould (20.3 *20.3 * 7.6 centimeters).
  • Gently smoothens the surface with a spatula and tap the tray on the kitchen counter to get rid of air bubbles in the cake batter.
  • Bake it in the preheated oven to 30 to 35 minutes or until inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • Transfer it to a cooling rack and gently remove the parchment paper.
  • Let it cool completely.

Simple Whipped Cream frosting

  • In a clean dry bowl add 1 cup non dairy whipping cream(ice cold) and whisk on medium-high speed until it starts to thicken.
  • Now add 1 tbsp of icing sugar( confectioners sugar) and whisk until soft peaks form. Add in a little pink colour gel and whisk until stiff peaks form.
  • The simple whipped cream frosting is ready to frost the cake. If you wish, you can add flavours to the frosting.
  • Frost the cake with whipped cream frosting and garnish with sliced strawberries and mint leaves.
  • Serve the cake slice with a cup of coffee or milk for a snack or dessert. I prefer to have the cake without frosting with a cup of coffee.


All the ingredients should be at room temperature. Measure granulated sugar and then powder in a mixer grinder. If square tin is not available, use a 9 inch round pan for this measurement. Use whole fat milk to achieve the richness in taste and golden brown colour of the cake. Every oven behaves differently, so have an eye after 20 minutes.
