This cake won rave reviews! It is a dense cake, somewhat like a pound cake (if such a thing is even possible without any eggs). The recipe I started with had reviews suggesting using only 3/4 cup of butter, which I’ll probably try next time.

Ingredients

  • * 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (cake flour is even better)
  • * 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • * 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • * 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • * 1 cup pureed strawberries
  • * 2 tablespoons sugar
  • * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • * 1 teaspoon strawberry flavoring
  • * 1 cup melted butter

Instructions

    -Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan or (2) 8″ rounds.
    -Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda. Make a well in the center and pour in the sweetened condensed milk, strawberry puree, vanilla, strawberry flavoring and melted butter. Mix well and pour into pan(s).
    -Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes for a 9×13 pan, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

Please add the 2 TBL sugar to the strawberries! Sorry I left that out of the instructions.

And, yet another note about this recipe: To be safe, you might want to add a tablespoon of white vinegar to ensure enough acid. :)

hi! i was just wondering if i didn't want to make it a strawberry cake (although it sounds delicious!) but wanted it to just be a vanilla cake w/out eggs? have you tried that??

I'm with you Janerss. I'm looking for an egg free cake that can be stacked, but I don't want strawberry.

I am in need of a pineapple cake for my nieces birthday. She is allergic to egg as well. So, I am going to try to substitute pineapple for the strawberry. Thanks!

The original version of this cake uses orange juice instead of strawberry puree. I bet the pineapple did work as a substitute, since it is so acidic. There are other vanilla eggless cake recipes. I think this particular recipe needs something like OJ, pineapple or strawberries for the acid.

Hi. Do you think this cake will hold up well under icing and fondant? I have to make a couple of purse cakes for twin 11 year olds and want to make sure. Thanks!! :)
