Prepare the following for a 10-inch strawberry cake you can share with others.
- Softened unsalted butter – 6 tablespoons plus more for pie plate
- All-purpose flour – 1 1/2 cups
- Baking powder – 1 1/2 teaspoons
- Salt – 1/2 teaspoon
- Sugar – 1 cup plus two tablespoons
- Egg – 1 large piece
- Milk – 1/2 cup
- Pure vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
- Strawberries, hulled and halved – 1 pound
Now that you have the ingredients let us begin with the cake. Preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees then use butter to grease a 10-inch pie plate. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl. Then put butter and a cup of sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Set in on medium-high speed and mix until the mixture becomes pale and fluffy. That will take about three minutes. Reduce the rate to medium-low and mix in the egg, milk, and vanilla. Next, set the speed to low and mix in the flour mixture gradually. Transfer the batter to the buttered pie plate you prepared earlier. Arrange the strawberries on top of the mix. Make sure you cut the sides down and put them as close together as possible. Sprinkle the remaining two tablespoons of sugar over the berries. Bake the cake for about ten minutes. You can then reduce the oven temperature to three hundred and twenty-five degrees. Bake the cake until it becomes golden brown and firm to the touch. That will take about an hour. Insert a toothpick in the centre of the cake to check if it is ready. If it comes out with nothing sticking on it, then you can let it cool on a wire rack. You can now cut it into wedges and share with your family and friends! Freshly whipped cream will make it even more perfect. Great and easy!
