I’ve been making a lot of smoothies since buying my 3-in-1 blender (might as well make use of it!) and due to this I’ve been buying a lot of strawberries and frozen fruit. I ended up buying about 1.8kg of fresh strawberries the other day as they were pretty cheap. I wanted to do something else other than smoothies so decided to make a strawberry and cream cheese cake 😀 The alternate layers of cake, cream cheese, and strawberry make the cake really moist and tasty!
For the cake: 120g margarine 120g sugar 2 eggs 250g chopped fresh strawberries 135g self raising flour 1 tsp vanilla For the cream cheese mix: 125g cream cheese 1 tsp vanilla 25g sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 180c 2. Mix together the ingredients for the cream cheese mix 3. In a separate bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar 4. Mix in the egg and vanilla with the margarine and sugar until smooth 5. Fold in the flour 6. Alternate the batter, cream cheese, and strawberries in a silicon baking tin 7. Bake for at least 40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean
