Easy Fresh Strawberry Cake

5 from 4 reviews

This simple tasty cake is bursting with strawberry flavor in every bite and is super easy to make.



  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and grease a 9″ round cake pan or pie plate.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar (and vanilla if desired) using an electric mixer on medium speed for about 3 minutes (or until pale in color)
  3. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir in the sifted flour just until the batter is combined and smooth.
  4. Fold in the strawberries and spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan. Top with a few strawberry halves.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes at 400F. Then lower the temp to 350F and bake for another 30-35 minutes or until golden on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool to just warm or room temperature. Serve with whipped cream if desired.


This cake is best enjoyed fresh the day of. Because of the natural juices from the strawberries, the cake tends to get soggy the day after.
