Strawberry cake with strawberry buttercream made from fresh strawberries! Strawberry cake made with fresh strawberries and no Jell-O? Yes, it’s possible and it’s delicious! The secret is adding a fresh strawberry reduction to your cake batter and mix the rest into your buttercream frosting for a fresh strawberry cake recipe that tastes like real strawberries!
This vibrant pink layer cake is pure strawberry-on-strawberry goodness, with fresh strawberries going into the cake batter and frosting. One thing to note about the buttercream frosting—it is absolutely bursting with berry flavor, but is easily over-mixed. If you find you’ve broken your emulsion when whipping this frosting up, no worries. You can simply mix in a little more powdered sugar to restore it. That said, we love how purely strawberry-forward the flavor of this frosting is, so we’d advise being very light-handed when adding extra powdered sugar, as it will dilute the berry flavor. In our opinion, it’s better to have a slightly broken frosting that tastes like strawberries than a perfectly pristine frosting that tastes like sugar.
