Make The Classical Strawberry Spoon Cake With Different Varieties


The luscious and soft berries of the springtime and the start of summer are best shown with this delicious strawberry spoon cake. The way it’s served—warm out of the grill, spooned into bowls, and capped with vanilla ice cream—inspired the name.

Before sprinkling the berries on top of a simple vanilla cake mix, we toss them in with some lemon juice, zest, and sweetness to bring out their maximum flavor. If strawberry season isn’t here, don’t worry too much—macerating the berries ahead of time enhances the flavor of even sad, out-of-season strawberries. 

Why We Adore The Strawberry Spoon Cake?

When prepared to perfection, this sweetie becomes the most exquisite carrier for those luscious, fragrant berries. 

It is very soft and moist. We adore the notion of producing strawberry spoon cake for your upcoming little celebration because it’s so simple to put together. 

When you take this out of the oven, your visitors will be swooning at a minimum (and we won’t share with them how simple it was to prepare!).

The Ingredients For Strawberry Spoon Cake

In only a couple of minutes, buttermilk, baking ingredients, and strawberries become a unique delicacy. The ingredients and proportions for this dessert are stated below:

  • Strawberries:

For this dish, picture-perfect fruit is not necessary. This recipe works well with berries that are a touch mushy and gooey.

  • Sugar:

To extract part of the fruit’s organic fluid, the berries are mixed with sugar. We call this process macerating. 

  • Butter:

Gives the cake more taste and creaminess.

  • Flour:

Provides the cake with a soft mouthfeel and serves as its body.

  • Salt:

To counteract the sugar content of the cake, a small amount of salt is required.

  • Sour Cream:

In addition to providing wetness and wealth, sour cream also slightly tarts the cake, counteracting the sweet taste of the fruity coating.

  • Buttermilk:

Buttermilk gives the cake texture and creaminess. For the cake to expand while heating, it also aids in activating the soda used for baking.

  • Vanilla Extract:

An indispensable element in baking that improves every taste.

  • Ice cream:

This topper is a choice, but we believe you’ll enjoy it.

  • Lemon Juice:

Lemon juice extracts its organic juice, much like sugar does. It also aids in achieving a balance between the sugar and berry deliciousness. The fruit is wonderfully perfumed with citrusy flowery overtones by the zest of lemon.

  • Baking Powder:

This leavening agent assists the batter for the cake to expand during baking so that it may become light and fluffy.

Steps to Make the Strawberry Spoon Cake

Perform the following steps.Make The Classical Strawberry Spoon Cake With Different Varieties

  • Set oven temperature to 350°F. In a medium-sized bowl, add berries, 1 tablespoon sugar, a teaspoon of lemon peel, and citrus juice. Lightly swirl to mix. Allow the berries to rest for fifteen minutes, or until their liquids start to flow.
  • Pieces of butter should be placed in a circular cake pan. Put in the oven and wait for the butter to melt. Transfer the melting butter into a big bowl and allow it to cool somewhat after cautiously swirling it around the pan so it covers the edges as well. 
  • In a larger basin, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix the melted butter with the leftover sugar and a smidgeon of lemon zest, whisking everything together. Stir in vanilla extract, sour cream, and buttermilk.
  • Gently incorporate the dry stuff into the mixture until no flour spots appear and the batter is just blended. Scrape the batter into an equal level in the prepared cake pan.
  • Equally, distribute the berries on the topping of the cake batter using an offset spoon. Pour approximately two tablespoons of liquid onto the fruit.
  • A pointed object placed in the middle of the cake should come out clean after baking for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the cake is beginning to pull apart from the pan and become a golden hue. Let the cake cool for five minutes, then scoop into dishes. Distribute hot with vanilla gelato.

Different Variations and Substitutions

The traditional strawberry spoon cake recipe is rather flexible, and we’ve included answers to some often-asked questions about substitutes and modifications. 

  • Replace the strawberries with a cup of fresh raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries. No requirement for a cut!
  • Create your replacement buttermilk in the house if you don’t have any onboard or can’t locate full buttermilk at the supermarket. Before using, add a teaspoon of lime juice or white vinegar to the rest of the milk, mix, and let settle.
