Hello friends! I’m back with another fun, delicious, and easy recipe. This vegan strawberry cake is what dreams are made of, and it’s the perfect way to use up the rest of these strawberries before summer comes to an end. This cake not only looks beautiful but it is really packed with strawberry flavor without the added use of strawberry extract.
My fondest memory of strawberry cake comes from my childhood; My mom and I would bake up one from the good ol’ pillsbury box mixes and slather it with the florescent pink canned frosting. Luckily for me (and you) I have taken all the delicious aspects of my childhood memory cake, with out all the questionable ingredients that are held within that box.
People always assume that making vegan cakes is harder then baking a traditional cake from scratch. That couldn’t be any further from the truth. Making any cake from scratch is not only easy but it tastes 1000000x better! After graduating from culinary school box-mix cakes became a big no no for me. I just get so much more satisfaction from making all my cakes from scratch. I like to know what exactly I’m eating when I do decide to indulge in sweets.
Strawberries are not only my one of my favorite fruits but it’s usually Willie and my favorite flavor ANYTHING. We love strawberry ice cream (which I have a GREAT no-churn recipe for in my new cookbook LETTUCE FEAST), strawberry cheesecake, or handmade strawberry Italian soda! You catch my drift, we are some real strawberry lovers in this house. When Willie and I first started dating I made him a strawberry cake for his birthday. (I truly think that’s when I won him over lol) ever since he wants strawberry cake for EVERY special occasion.
In my personal opinion I think cake is necessary for every occasion! I think that this pretty little pink cake will be the eye catcher at any event. This cake is sure to impress anyone for whatever event you bring it to. Birthday’s, dinner parties, family BBQ’s, etc. it’s definitely a eye catcher! I hope you guys try this recipe out, it’s definitely worth the effort and your friends and family will LOVE you for this. If you do happen to make this pretty pink baby, make sure to snap a pic and share it with us on Instagram with #WildSunflowerChef. We love seeing all the recreations you guys make, it truly warms my heart to see you guys enjoying my recipes.
Until next time, friends! Happy cooking!
