Strawberry Cake

I saw a Strawberry Cake on a blog I follow & adapted it a bit….

The recipe I adapted is from MarthaStewart.com Strawberry cake

I like to try & make desserts non-dairy or parve if possible… so I adapted this recipe … only changing the milk to water & butter to vegan margarine. The cake was perfect! Moist & tender, so it is easy to make adaptions to most recipes…one just have to make sure to think it through & adjust ingredients sometimes… depending on the recipe, sometimes to replace milk with water more fat has to be added. In my posts I have always made note of this. For this recipe i did not add any additional fat… this cake is a simple white cake with strawberries on top.

We ate this yummy cake with some strawberry ice cream & cut up fresh strawberries & blackberries…

Here is the recipe

Ingredients

6 tbsp vegan margarine

1 cup sugar + 2 tbsp of sugar for the top of the cake

1 large egg

1/2 cup water

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 pound/454 grams of strawberry’s … a bit more than a pint
