NAKED STRAWBERRY CAKE WITH LEMON BASIL

PICTURE OF VEGAN NAKED STRAWBERRY CAKE WITH LEMON BASIL

Every year in May, little strawberry houses show up all over Berlin and they sell fresh, red, sweet strawberries right from the fields outside the city. And that means strawberry cake. 

Last summer I tried the vanilla cake recipe by Loving it vegan (original recipe here) and it was great, but I also had a couple of ideas what I could do with it and came up with a less sweet version that has a cream cheese frosting and lemon basil to go with the strawberries and I also decided for a fashionable naked cake design …

 

Ingredients

3/4 cup sugar (100g)(I used coconut sugar)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup plant milk (240ml)

2 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup plant oil (80ml)

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups of strawberries (250 g)

lemon basil (ordinary basil will work too)

 

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350° Fahrenheit. Mix dry ingredients well and mix wet ingredients well, then pour together and combine.

Pour in two 7inch round springform baking tins and bake for 40 minutes. If using non-springform tins it is better to line them with parchment paper as in the original recipe.

For the frosting combine vegan butter, cream cheese, powered sugar and vanilla and mix with an electric mixer, slowly increasing speed until smooth.

Wash strawberries and cut off the green. 

When the cakes have cooled, you can cut the top part off with a knife for a more stable cake. Apply frosting on one cake and put the other one on top, then apply frosting on that one too.
