This delicious, fun and pretty upside down strawberry cake is a great dessert. The strawberries cook with the cake and make a delicious tasting top that you can either make sweet or tart. Dust with icing sugar, place fresh strawberries on top and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 1

1/4 cup brown sugar (optional)
250g strawberries (reserve 2 for the top of the cake if desired)
1/2 cup butter (or nuttelex if lactose free)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk (lactose free if required)
1 tbsp vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups flour (gluten free if required)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Icing sugar, to dust
Cream or ice cream, to serve (optional)

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a round cake tin with baking paper.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the base of the cake tin. This step can be excluded if you prefer a tart tasting cake.
  • Cut the strawberries in half longways and place them cut side facing up in the bottom of the cake tin so the pan is covered. I placed the strawberries in a ring around the edge of the cake tin and then filled the middle.

  • Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl for 2 minutes until pale.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat to combine. Add the vanilla essence and milk, beat to combine.
  • In a separate bowl whisk the flour and baking powder until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients gradually and stir until just combined. Take care not to overwork the batter.
  • Pour the batter evenly over the strawberries and bake for 30-35 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.

  • Take the cake out of the oven, place on a wire rack and allow to cool in the cake tin for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the cake from the tin, peel off the baking paper and pour any syrup on top of the cake.
  • Dust the cake with icing sugar, place 2 cut strawberries on the centre and serve with whipped cream or ice cream. Enjoy!

  • Tips
  • This cake looks spectacular with a whipped cream swirl on top.
  • This cake is delicious with blueberries placed between the strawberries.
