Ingredients :

For each layer of the cake mixture:

4 eggs (separate egg yolk / white)

1/2 cup of sugar (1/4 + 1/4 for egg white)

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 cup of flour

2 tablespoons of milk

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

4 tablespoons of powdered milk

1 lemon zest

For the Cream :

200 grams of butter

200 grams of sugar

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

4 tablespoons of powdered milk

For decoration :


Nuts (hazelnuts or walnuts are highly recommended)

Directions :

you can make as many layers as you’d like, I find it convenient making 3-4 layers.

First separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Add your egg yolks into a bowls, add 1/4 cup of sugar and the lemon zest to them then mix them well until smooth.

Add the vanilla, milk and oil to your mixture, then mix again. Add the flour, powdered milk and baking powder and mix one last time until well combined.

In another bow, add the egg white and mix them using an electric mixer until it rises and becomes white. Gradually add the 1/4 cup of sugar to it and mix until it’s thick. Gradually add the egg white to the previous mixture, using the folding method to mix them all together, then put it in the cake mold you’d like and bake it until its surface is golden yellow

For the Cream :

put the eggs and vanilla in a bowl and mix them with an electric mixer, leave it on. Meanwhile, put the sugar in a small cooking pot on the stove with medium temperature until melted, add the lemon juice then mix until it’s boiling, add it to the egg mixture, while mixing simultaneously, then add the powdered milk, and mix on last time. Cut the butter into small pieces then add them to another bowl, add the previous mixture to the butter and mix them all until well combined, your cream would be ready.

You can put as much cream as wished on each layer, then put your strawberries on it and then a cake dough… Decorate the top and cut the edges.

Here are some tips to help you get the best results when making this Strawberry Vanilla Cake:

  1. Use fresh strawberries for the best flavor. If strawberries are out of season, frozen strawberries can be used instead.
  2. Use high-quality vanilla extract for the best flavor.
  3. Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature before you start baking, as this will help the cake to rise evenly.
  4. When adding the strawberries to the batter, be careful not to overmix, as this can cause the cake to become dense.
  5. To get a light and fluffy texture, be sure to cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  6. If you want to add an extra layer of flavor, try adding a few drops of lemon juice to the batter.
  7. When baking the cake, make sure to keep an eye on it and check it regularly. Baking times can vary depending on your oven, so use a toothpick or cake tester to make sure the cake is fully cooked.
  8. Let the cake cool completely before decorating or slicing, as this will help to prevent it from falling apart.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to baking the perfect Strawberry Vanilla Cake!
