Serves 10-12


  • For the Cake:
  • 8 ounces strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • For the Icing:
  • 4 ounces hulled strawberries
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream, whipped
  • 5-6 extra strawberries, for decoration



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter a 9-inch round cake pan and line the base with parchment paper.

Toss the strawberries in a little of the flour, to coat. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in the orange zest, flour, baking powder and strawberries in 3 batches. Stir to combine after each addition.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Place the strawberries and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process to a puree. Fold into the whipped cream. Ice the cake and decorate with the strawberries and serve.
