A soft, fruity cake that is perfect for tea time...

Moist HEAVENLY Strawberry Cake!

This cake makes the perfect, tea time snack. The cake layer is so soft and moist and then you get that hint of sweet strawberry on top, the flavors combined are truly excellent.

I wouldn’t suggest changing anything in this recipe, keep the ingredients and measurements the same and you won’t be disappointed.

This recipe calls for a combination of oat and all-purpose flour. I have yet to try using just oat flour to make this but the combination of both flours really worked well here. If you do try, feel free to leave a comment below!

Use baking powder and salt.

Use 1 medium-sized egg for best results.

Use granulated sugar for best results.

You can use any milk you prefer for this recipe.

Use unsalted regular or dairy-free butter for best results. I haven't tried using oil instead.

You will need about a cup of strawberries, cut in half.

You don’t really need much to make this recipe and you can easily use what you already have on hand.

You will need:

For measuring: 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 tbsp, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, 1 cup.

    Why is oat flour needed? What difference does it make to the recipe? Would it be alright to use all purpose flour only?

      Definitely okay to use just all-purpose flour! I used oat flour because the combination of the two really worked well in this recipe, but you can go ahead and use ap only!
