Strawberry Bundt Cake

  • 225g/8oz soft butter, plus extra for greasing

  • 4 free-range eggs
    1/2 teaspoon of bicarnate of soda.
    1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  • 350g/10½oz self raising flour

    250ml/9oz low-fat natural yoghurt or milk

  • 2 teaspoon  vanilla extract

    optional red food colouring

    tin of drained strawberries

    or 2 punnets of fresh ones ( these will probably be from Spain )

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Place a baking tray into the oven to heat. Grease a your bunt tin or use Lakeland cake release (brilliant stuff)
  2. In a mixing bowl, sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda together.
  3. Mix the butter and sugar together in another large bowl with a wooden spoon (or a sparkly red mixer that looks like a shiny Ferrari ) until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking each one in with a tablespoon of the flour. Carefully fold in the remaining flour using a large metal spoon, then fold in the yoghurt and vanilla extract until well combined.Lastly add the drained strawberries or the chopped up fresh one , give another whizz in the food mixer.

  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread until level. Place the tin on the preheated baking sheet in the oven and cook for 45-60 minutes, until well risen and golden-brown. After 45 minutes, push a metal skewer into the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked.
  6. Make sure you do remove the cake from the oven and place onto a wire rack, without removing it from the tin. Leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  7. Gently pull away the edges of the cake from the tin with your fingers, then carefully turn out the cake onto the wire rack. Leave to cool completely.
  8. Once cool, decorate in a manner of your choosing . I combined icing sugar and melted chocolate . I also dipped in some whole strawberries to decorate.


  1. This is proper food porn! It looks delicious but too pretty to eat!

  2. Oh my gosh!! I'm dribbling lol! This looks so yummy!! Xx

  3. Looks delicious. My lot are craving strawberries too - just made cake pops with freeze dried strawberries on today!

  4. Not gonna lie, that sound and looks lush!!

    I recently posted Finding Dory!

  5. Have you ever seen 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding'? When the couple getting married's parents meet, the mother-in-law brings a bundt as a gift and the other mother can't believe that she has been brought "a cake with a hole in it!" I always think of this when I see a Bundt. I love the idea of this cake for the Summer when there is a glut of strawberries. It would be a great way to use strawberries that have started to go a little soft.

  6. I have never made a bundt cake!! I feel I need to and then maybe put something really tasty in the hole :')

  7. I haven't baked in YEARS and YEARS but HOW divine does that look. Wow. Watering at the mouth. x

  8. Get this on #recipeoftheweek this instant! *drools* I need to buy a bundt tin STAT.

  9. I have always liked the look of these but never tried one. Have you any left?!

  10. DROOOL....! I don't have a bunt tin - do you think I could make this in a round cake tin?

    1. of course just alter the amount of ingredients to suit x

  11. Ha ha I didn't know about bundts before - I made one for Austin's birthday without even knowing it! This looks super-scrummy.

  12. My mouth watered. All I have is a digestive biscuit and it seems a bit naff compared to this!

  13. Looks yummy I keep meaning to bake more - but I never find the time!

  14. I like what I see!
    Just a little piece :-) please

  15. I've always wanted to try and make a Bundt cake but never really got round to testing it out. Might have to go back on my baking list x
