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!

Instructions

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.

How To Line a Loaf or Pound 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.

    I was drawn to this recipe by the thumbnail image. Had a whole lot of strawberries at home and pound cake happens to be a favorite at home, so decided to give this a try. It was absolutely delectable. I am making it again today, this recipe is a keeper. It was perfect the very first time.

  3. Would u plz put what regular baking temp would be
    Not everybody uses this
    Also there are 2 baking pan sizes so plz put what size you used this is important
    Thank you

    1. Hi Doreen, yes of course! Be aware you will get those pesky seeds from the raspberries in the cake unless you donโ€™t mind that!! It will be delicious.
      Just a tip, when you mash your raspberries, taste it incase you need to add a little icing sugar to take away any sharpness, as you know, they can be a bit sour sometimes. Please enjoy!

  4. hiya,
    i made this wonderful loaf cake yesterday and I added chopped fresh peaches (I halved the amount of strawberries)
    Oh gosh it was lovely with ice cream…..

    I followed the receipe and did the baking temp at 310. I did have to leave it in the oven longer, as it was undone. I kept checking with my skewer and adjusted the time as needed. All of the people complaining need to take a step back and figure it out. Not all ovens are the same. Figure it out.

    Regarding the flavor, excellent. Thank you for sharing the receipe.

  6. im so glad I followed the lady who suggested 375 degrees for 60 minutes! I also did small individual bundt pans and cooked for 30 minutes. For some reason my strawberries sunk to the bottom. In my opinion it’s missing something. I will try adding brown sugar and/or soaking the strawberries in sugar.

    k so is it a great pound cake or not? some of you love it, and others say it’s not great, too soft and soggy at the bottom. I would love to try this, but baking ingredients are expensive, and don’t want to waste my money. So, as Hamlet would have said…to bake it , or not to bake it….that is the question … :)

  8. This cake has a very good taste, however, it does not have the texture of a pound cake. More like a bread pudding, very moist and the bottom half is too dense and moist and appears under baked. I am a good cake baker and never had this happen before. I served it with strawberries and Redi Whip and it was still tasty, but I won’t make it again. There is something wrong with the recipe or baking temperature, or maybe in a larger pan so it isn’t such a deep cake.
