Strawberry Almond Cake

I am a cake. I have no taste, but feel free to eat me anyway if you are hungry.

This cake is a classic. It’s made with strawberries, almonds, and a light almond extract. The cake is fluffy and moist and has a delicate taste that will make you want to eat it every day.


My sister Rebe came to visit me in New York City one summer when I was suffering from a bad case of mono. She was terrible, but she pushed herself to go since it was my best friend/and roommate’s my birthday weekend at the time (our birthdays are 5 days apart). The whole time was spent hauling a half-sleeping infant around. Rebe put up a valiant battle against her exhaustion, but she couldn’t prevail in the end. She’d lay her head on her arm and attempt to fall asleep whenever she could. 

I asked if we may go up on my roof to view Manhattan from above one day. At the time, I was living on the Lower East Side, and my apartment building offered a spectacular view of the city. Rebe consented to do it, bless her heart. We were halfway up the one flight of steps that separated us from the roof when it started:

“I’m sorry, Sarah, but I’m not up to it.” “I’m exhausted.”

“You certainly can!” “We’re almost there!” I informed her. She grumbled and trudged on.

The roof featured a ‘regular’ section where the view was somewhat hampered by the roof’s ledge, and then a 5 foot tall block in the middle where you could see the whole city. We were planning to board it. “No, I can’t do that,” Rebe responded as I pointed to the barrier. “Yes you can!” I responded, ever the bossy elder sister. I’ll give you a boost, and then we’ll lay down in the sun.”

She wined, “Sarahhhhhhh.” I, on the other hand, was not going to take no for an answer. I extended my hands to help her foot, but she refused. “Nooo,” she exclaimed.


I spent the next five minutes attempting to persuade her to join me on the block. I told her how close we were! Simply raise your leg and we’ll be there! She, on the other hand, refused to budge. She merely stood there, eyes closed and half sleeping, with her head on her forearm and her forearm on the block. I couldn’t stop myself from laughing. Even though she was exhausted, she couldn’t stop. It was hilarious: all she had to do was raise a leg, and she was desperate to make me happy, but she couldn’t.

I eventually gave in and said it was OK, that we could go downstairs and she could sleep. But it still makes me giggle every time I recall that tale. She tried so hard to push beyond her exhaustion for my sake, but the 5 foot block was simply too much for her. She was unable to elevate her leg. What a treasure, my sister.

That narrative has nothing to do with this strawberry almond cake. It is, however, delectable. It’s extremely moist because to the almond meal, and the slivered almonds on top provide a nice crunch. It’s also created in one dish and looks elegant enough to serve to a dinner party. Win-win.


Strawberry Almond Cake Recipe

This is a moist, fresh strawberry cake with a hint of orange zest and almond essence. It’s just sweet enough to qualify as dessert, but not too sugary. You’ll need the following ingredients to prepare this delicious strawberry almond cake:

Beat the butter until light and fluffy — You didn’t think I’d create a cake recipe without beating the butter to death, did you? To make the frosting, cream together the butter, oil, eggs, and sugar until light and fluffy (which will take 2-3 minutes). The cake will not get excessively thick as a result of this.

After the butter mixture has been properly beaten, add the dry ingredients and whisk until just mixed. Then, using your hands, fold in the fresh strawberry slices.

Bake the cake – In an 8-inch cake pan, bake the strawberry almond cake for about 40 minutes. Allow the cake to cool for a few minutes before dusting with powdered sugar.


The best way to serve strawberry almond cake is to cut it into squares.

When you have guests around and want to treat them to something special but don’t want to deal with layer cakes and a lot of icing, this strawberry almond cake is the perfect dessert to create. This cake is great for presenting with a cup of hot tea or coffee since it is so simple and lovely. Serve with a little dusting of powdered sugar on top and a dollop of whipped cream on the side for a finishing touch.
