For this recipe, I used fresh strawberries, but of course, you could also use frozen strawberries, just make sure you defrost them and pat dry with kitchen paper to get rid of any excess water from the freeze.
The fruity pound cake is also freezer friendly so if you wanted to make ahead, or cut into slices and freeze individually if there's just you at home then simply bring to room temperature and it's good to eat!
This recipe came about because of our monthly 30-day Blogger recipe challenge, and yep, the theme for this month was strawberries!
Of course, I had to make a cake. I love cake, and even more, I love a good pound cake. So it was a simple decision to bake a strawberry pound cake.

Here's some I made, together with a variety of cupcakes to take to a party. They were polished off in no time!
You will need a loaf tin, mine measures 30 cm x 12 cm, and 8 cm deep. (12-inch pan)
The batter may also fit in a 9-inch loaf pan. If you have any left over, make some cupcakes!
1 Hr 20 - 30 minutes
¾ cup or 175 g softened butter
¼ cup or 60 ml milk
1 ½ cups or 290 g regular sugar
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
9 oz or 250 g Fresh Strawberries, mashed
1 ¾ cups or 225 g Plain / All purpose flour (sieved)
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1. Heat oven to 160c, 300F. Grease and line your baking tin. See here for how to line.
Please note, if using a Bundt tin, be sure to grease it very well as it can be hard to get the cake out of such a shaped tin.
If you don't have any parchment paper, use our easy pan release recipe (it only takes minutes to make a batch) and your cake will slide out no problem!
2. Get all your ingredients ready, i.e mash the strawberries so there are chunks, i.e don't over mash!
Sieve the flour, and add the salt and baking powder to the flour etc.
3. Start with making the cake batter by creaming the butter and sugar until a pale light colour.
4. Slowly add the beaten eggs to the mixer, on a low-speed setting, a bit at a time.
If the mixture starts to curdle or split, add a spoonful of your sieved flour, keep on adding the eggs, and a bit of flour if necessary until all the eggs are added.
5. Add half the milk with half of the flour, keeping the mixer on a slow speed.
Once combined, add the vanilla extract, the rest of the milk and flour.
Right at the end, fold in the mashed strawberries.
6 Transfer the cake mixture to the greased and lined loaf tin.
Place in the oven for 1 hour 10 minutes, check after 1 hour.
Test if done by placing a skewer in the center of the cake and make sure it comes out clean.
Every oven is different so cook times will vary a little.
Please note, if using a Bundt tin, cook time is 45 minutes.
7. Have a cup of tea and wait!
Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
And there you have our Strawberry Pound Cake!
This cake is best eaten the following day, although it doesn't usually last that long!

The best of both worlds, pound cake and strawberries
I just did it with blueberries! Perfecto!!! Mmmmmm! Can’t wait to have some tomorrow! Sweet dreams! TRULY — SWEET DREAMS!!! LOL!
Could this be made with other fruits, say peaches?
Hi Diana, I haven’t tried it using any other fruits and we haven’t had feedback yet from anyone who has because it is a new recipe (only 2 weeks old), so I have made it twice and it comes out perfect. However, I don;t see there would be a problem using peaches. (That idea sounds really delicious!). Just keep to the quantities and you should be fine.
Please do pop back with your feedback if you try with peaches so it will be helpful for others too!
Thanks very much and wishing you a lovely weekend
I need a conversion for the oven temp……what is 160c in degrees
Hi Shirley, all the temperature conversions are in step 1 of the instructions, for C, F and Gas, so you select whichever applies to you.
Well 160c -= 320 f but it still was way undercooked? I saw one person baked at 375 for an hour and it came out perfect. My was at 310 for two hours and still was undone in a convection oven??? To expensive for mistake won’t make again:(
Yes, 160C was way too low for my oven too. Even mine has a fan as well. I think it needs to be at 180/360F atleast. But otherwise the recipe seems lovely. It is more brown/grey than pink in the center though. Not sure why mine is not more yellow.
