How To Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour the 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar using an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with the Greek yogurt. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in the diced strawberries, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
  8. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  9. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  10. While the cake is cooling, prepare the strawberry cream cheese frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter until creamy and well combined.
  11. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, and continue mixing until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  12. Gently fold in the pureed strawberries, ensuring the frosting has a lovely pink hue and a burst of strawberry flavor.
  13. Once the cake has cooled completely, generously frost the top and sides with the strawberry cream cheese frosting.

Note: Make sure to use gluten-free all-purpose flour and almond flour that are certified gluten-free to ensure the recipe is truly gluten-free.

Can I Use Frozen Strawberries Instead Of Fresh Ones?

Fresh strawberries work best for this recipe, as frozen strawberries may release excess moisture and alter the texture of the cake.

What Is Flour Best For Gluten-Free Cake?

The best flour for gluten-free cake is rice flour. It is made from a grain called rice. It will make your cake much lighter than other gluten-free flours, such as sorghum flour or bean paste, which are heavier in texture.
