Bank Holiday Strawberry Bundt Cake

I love the strawberry bundt cake by @dollybakes www.dollybakes.co.uk and I have made it a few times. This time I decided to change it a little.

This is her recipe just changed a little.

Ingredients:

  • 225g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 350g thick strawberry yoghurt (one with plenty of fruit in it for flavour)
  • 1 packet of strawberries half for the cake and half to serve with the cake
  • 1/2 tsp strawberry essence 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 c.
  2. Grease the bundt pan with melted butter and dust with flour – this will help you see if you haven’t greased any spots.
  3. Cream the butter (at room temperature) and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. It will get noticeably fluffier.
  5. In a separate bowl, measure and sieve out the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  6. Take a hand full/half of strawberries and chop up into small pieces – I then used a potato masher to mash the strawberries even more. I added them to the yoghurt and mixed them in well.
  7. Add the yoghurt and the extract into the creamed ingredients and mix well.
  8. Sift in the flour in two halves. Mix this slowly until all the flour has disappeared. Over-mixing at this stage will make a dense cake and may cause air channels. This can ruin the shape of a decorative bundt.
  9. Pour the mix into a greased and floured tin.
  10. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. It’s stable from about an hour in if you want to check or turn it around.
  11. The cake will pull away from the edge of the tin when it is ready.
  12. Leave the cake to cool fully before removing from the tin.
  13. I decorated the cake with icing and sprinkles once cool.

It looked so pretty and served with fresh strawberries was a lovely touch.

I loved these new sprinkles. Very bright colours and very satisfying to look at!
