Yo Yo Yo!

Summer is almost there! It was so nice and warm (and even hot some days) lately, that there was only a few desserts I want to eat. And since it’s strawberry season, I went all the way into this!

It the cake that is 1. easy 2. relatively fast 3. everyone likes 4. just yummy. It also has a few ingredients only and you can use any fruits you want (hey there plums, waiting for you and September). |So without further delay, I present to you STRAWBERRY CAKE!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk (warm)
  • 3/4 oz active yeast
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 oz rapeseed oil (or any oil you like)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2-3 cups of strawberries

Take 3 spoons of warm milk and a spoon of sugar and mix it with active yeast and leave it in a warm spot to grow. In the meantime add all ingredients but strawberries to the big bowl. When the yeast grows add it to the bowl and mix all together. Set it aside in a warm spot for around an hour, and cover with kitchen towel so it is ever more warm.

Wash the strawberries. If they are big cut into smaller pieces and left them in colander to dry a little.

Move the dough to the pan (I used square 9″ pan), and put strawberries on top. Set aside for another 15 minutes in a warm spot and let the dough grow a little bit more. Preheat an oven to 380 degrees.

In the meantime you can prepare the top cover „crumbs”, which is not an obligatory part of the cake 🙂 But if you want it, cut around 1-2 oz of cold (!) butter into small pieces, mix it with sugar and flour, and put it on top of strawberries right before moving the cake to the oven.

Bake the cake for around 35 minutes. Let it cool for a few minutes and let yourself eat it all at once 🙂

Hope you love it as much as I do!
