Instructions

  • Prepare the pan by lightly greasing with oil and then sprinkling some flour on the base and sides.
  • Cut a parchment paper tracing the base of the pan and place it in the pan.
  • Sift and measure dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Puree the strawberries.

  • Now add the wet ingredients to the dry ones slowly.
  • Use a whip/ balloon attachment to whip the batter.
  • Whip until mixed without lumps, do not over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the pan and tap the pan gently on the counter to let the air bubbles escape if any.
  • Place a rose pin in the center of the pan if available. Refer to the tips mentioned above in the post.

  • If decorating then cover the cake with cling and foil wrap , place it in the fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight for easy handling while frosting.

Notes

All ingredients need to be at room temperature.
I have used 10” square pan .
This recipe makes one 9 “ cake / 10 “ cake or 9*13 cake, Bundt cake.
For one 8” cake or two 6 “cakes simply cut the recipe in half – baking time will vary accordingly.
Use yogurt of your choice. (No sour yogurt please)
If sugar granules are big then pulse it in a blender after measuring so that it melts quickly in the batter.
Substitute corn flour with equal amount of All purpose flour.
The consistency of batter needs to be thick so I don’t feel the need for extra liquid. Use a teaspoon liquid at a time if batter feels difficult to whip.
Substitute lemon juice with vinegar .
