Blender Strawberry Tube Cake

It had to happen.  My Blender Orange Rhubarb Cake was a hit.   So, what’s next?   A Strawberry Social at the Trenton Garden Club, and “please bring a dessert”.

It probably should have strawberries in it.  And I wanted to make another blender cake.

So here’s what happened;

I searched out a tube cake recipe with lots of pureed fruit as my base, and changed a lot of the flavours to suit my needs.

1 pound of strawberries, blended, makes 2 cups.  Perfect. 

blended liquids

A bit of lemon zest to accent the berries, eggs, oil, vanilla, zoom zoom, add the sugar and dump into the already mixed dry ingredients.

liquid and dryDump, stir, spoon into a greased tube pan and bake. It smells and tastes heavenly, and is nice and moist.   Does it get any easier?  AND, it’s a “scratch cake”.

Ingredients
  1. 3½ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 2 cups pureed strawberries (about 1 pound)(could substitute frozen, undrained)
  6. Zest of 1 lemon
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  9. 1 cup granulated sugar
  10. 1 cup lard or veg shortening, at room temperature
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease and flour a 10- or 12-cup bundt pan
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. Hull the strawberries and puree in the blender.
  5. Add the lemon zest, vanilla, then the eggs, one at a time, blending well.
  6. Add the sugar, blend, then the lard/vegetable shortening.
  7. It will look a bit curdled, that’s ok.
  8. When all is blended, pour into the flour mixture and stir just until blended. Lumpy is fine.
  9. Transfer batter to prepared pan and spread evenly.
  10. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  11. Cool cake in the pan for 10 minutes.
  12. Remove cake from pan by inverting it onto a wire rack.
  13. Cool cake completely.
  14. Dust cake with confectioners sugar if desired.
Notes
  1. This is another super easy cake that's easy on clean-up.

  1. It’s probably my fault but I have to say that the cake turned out terrible. The cake didn’t grow, it tasted slightly sour and it had a rubbery consistency.

    1. I’m from Portugal. I think some of our basis ingredients are slightly different. I remember finding the flour 7 liquid proportions a bit off. I think that is why. I will have to make some adjustments 🙂 Anyway, keep up the good work, it doesn’t really suit my ingredients but it still looks mnhami
