Strawberry Cake

I was really craving strawberries and cake, I wanted a true, homemade, strawberry cake that was sure to be moist and soft. Fortunately, it came out almost perfectly.

Ingredients

  • Baker’s Joy or Cooking Spray
  • 2¼ cups cake flour (9 ounces), plus more for dusting the pans
  • 1 pkg (3 oz) strawberry gelatin (about 1/3+ cups)
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon table salt (I use kosher)
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1½ sticks), softened but still cool
  • 6 large egg whites (¾ cup or 180 grams), at room temperature
  • 1 cup tablespoons whole milk, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups strawberry purée (I used 2 cups in this cake, so I think 1 to 1 1/2 cups would be better) [1 1/2 cups strawberries with stems removed (fresh or thawed) + 1/4 – 1/3 granulated sugar (depends on how sweet the berries are) + Juice of 1 lemon]
  • Strawberry Frosting
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening (can sub more butter for a less fluffy frosting)
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar (to taste)
  • 1 tsp lemon extract (optional)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup strawberry purée
