Strawberry Dreams


This cake is so girly and pink and screams birthday queen vibes. It’s four layers of vanilla eggless cake (recipe down below) with strawberries in-between the layers. On top, there are strawberry macarons, fresh flowers, more strawberries and vanilla cake pops!

The recipient of this cake requested it to be eggless. I had never made an eggless cake before but I figured it would still taste good but it will be more dense. The recipe I followed, used sweetened condensed milk as the “binding” and my goodness it was delicious! Super dense, but super good.

Vanilla Cake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Directions

  1. IMPORTANT: this recipe needs to be doubled if you are making 2 cakes (4 layers) which is what I did. So just double everything, otherwise stick with the amounts.
  2. Preheat the oven at 350F for 15 minutes. Lightly grease an 8 inch pan and line it with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in the sugar.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the the wet ingredients one by one. Stir the mixture together using a whisk.
  5. Pour the batter in the prepared pan and tap the pan to even it out and break the air bubbles if any.
  6. Bake it for 40-55 minutes (some pans and some ovens vary so start watching it around 40 minutes!)
  7. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and remove the cake after 15-20 minutes. Place the cake on the rack for it to cool down completely before slicing it.
