This tender little Strawberry Snack Cake is super quick and easy -- and super delicious, with the flavor of fresh strawberries and whipped cream!
Serves: 9-12
Snack Cake Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons cake flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Strawberry Glaze Ingredients:
  • 5-6 strawberries, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • whipped cream
  1. To make the cake: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease an 8-inch square baking pan (I even add a little square of greased parchment at the bottom). In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the butter and water to a boil. In the meantime, in a separate large bowl, whisk together the cake flour and sugar before adding the egg, sour cream, almond extract, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt. Mix to combine. While mixing, slowly pour in the boiling butter and water mixture. Mix to combine completely. Your batter will be very runny. Pour the batter into your prepared pan.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in several places comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely.
  3. To make the glaze: Put chopped strawberries and jam into a food processor to puree. Pour into a medium bowl and mix in milk and vanilla extract. Gradually whisk in powdered sugar. Pour glaze over the cake to cover (I used most but not all of it). Cut into sliced and serve with whipped cream.

    YES! Both to precious seventh graders and to this strawberry cake. You have included two of my very favorite things in this blog post 🙂 One of the hardest things about being back in the classroom is that now I don’t have as much time to cook. Maybe I can talk my 14 year old into making this snack…

    Hi, you mention 1 egg in the Ingredients list, but eggS (plural) in the Instructions. Please clarify, is it one egg or more? Followed instructions exactly. Cake was like pudding after 15 minutes, 375F. Needed another 10 minutes baking time. By chance, is there a typo and you meant 25-28 minutes rather than 15-18 minutes? (Have a thermometer in my oven in addition to oven setting, so have ruled out there being an issue with my oven.) Thank you!

      It’s one egg — thanks for catching the plural in the ingredients; I’ll fix that! The 15-18 minutes is accurate, but cooking time can vary based on the pan/dish type, oven, altitude, etc. Glad you were able to test yours to the doneness you like!
