Its my hubby's Birthday. I wanted to surprise him with homemade cake. I know he is not a great lover of cakes, but my kids are so after it so, I decided to make my kids favourite :-). When, I checked with my daughters, all of them gave a thumbs up for Strawberry cake as they love strawberries. So, I went to walmart and got fresh strawberries and started making this cake. My daughters helped me to make this cake. They are so excited that I let them help me. They really wanted to bake for their dad. So, We decided to make a 2 layer cake and I also got the store bought chocolate frosting to decorate the cake further. The cake was amazingly soft and yummy with strawberry chunks. Kids loved the chocolate frosting and waited patiently till their dad came from office and cut the cake. All of them really enjoyed the Eggless Strawberry Cake. I would like to share the recipe and I believe your kids too enjoy this delicious cake.

Ingredients:
All purpose Flour1 Cup*
Finely Chopped Strawberries1 Cup
Baking Soda1 teaspoon
Baking Powder1/2 teaspoon
Salt1/4 teaspoon
Sugar1/2 Cup
Brown Sugar 1/4 Cup
Flax Seeds Powder1 tablespoon
Butter 1/2 Cup
Curd / Yogurt1/2 Cup
Vannila Essence1 teaspoon
Halved Strawberries1/2 Cup**

* 1 Cup = 250ml
** For Decoration
Method:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Take a cake tin and grease it with butter and dust it with little flour and set it aside. Soak the flax seeds powder in 3 tablespoon of warm water and stir well and set that aside too

  3. In a mixing bowl, add all purpose flour, baking soda, baking salt and a pinch of salt and give a good mix. Also wash the strawberries well and chop them finely and measure 1 cup of strawberries and set them aside

  4. In another bowl, add yogurt, brown sugar, sugar and vannila essence.

  5. Mix everything well with a whisk. Add the flax seeds mixed with water, now that, this flax seeds mixture would have become a nice gel, this is a nice alternate for eggs. Give everything a good mix

  6. Meanwhile, soften the butter in microwave. Even, you could take the butter and keep it well ahead so that it would become soften.  Now add the flour to the wet batter 

  7. Stir well so that everything is nicely incorporated. Add chopped strawberries to the cake batter. 

  8. Mix everything well so that the strawberries are combined well with the batter. To this add the soften butter and give a good stir. Pour the batter into the cake tin and pat the tin so that there are no air pores. 

  9. I actually made twice the quantity of the above mentioned ingredients and baked 2 cakes. Place the tin in the oven and bake it for 35-40 minutes or till the toothpick comes out clean.  Take out the baked cake and allow it to completely cool off before you apply frosting. We can serve the cake as it is without frosting also. I actually prefer that as the frosting adds more fat to the cake. Using a bread knife or flat spatula, apply the frosting on top of one cake and then place the other cake on above the frosting applied cake. Then apply the frosting on the all over the layered cake. 

  10. Decorate the cake with halved strawberries.
