Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake with a Strawberry Cream Cheese glaze, from scratch, is SUPER moist and amazingly delicious!

THIS cake…. this cake my friends, just might win an award if there were a prize being offered for “most moist cake, ever!” I love greek yogurt, and regularly scope out new and different ways to incorporate it into the recipes that I make. I was so excited to have discovered a strawberry cake that uses greek yogurt as I was browsing around over at A Spicy Perspective. I KNEW I had to make it at first glance!

How to make strawberry cake with yogurt

This strawberry cake is easy and straightforward to make:

  • prep the pan : grease a bundt cake pan or spray it with non-stick spray
  • combine dry ingredients
  • add lemon zest: it adds the perfect tang to the recipe
  • prep the strawberries – you’ll need about 12 ounces of fresh, sweet strawberries thinly sliced. Dry them well with paper towels.

Make the wet ingredients:

  • cream together sugar and butter
  • add in the eggs and lemon juice along with vanilla extract
  • mix in Green yogurt: vanilla or plain is best in this recipe!
  • fold in the strawberries

Pour the batter into your prepared bundt pan. Note: The batter IS going to be thick, and that’s okay! You’ll start by pre-heating your oven to 375, but right when you pop the cake into the oven, you’ll reduce it down to 325 degrees F. Bake the cake for about 65 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool for about 30 minutes before flipping it, carefully, onto a plate. Look at this beauty! If you’ve used a good thick Greek yogurt, the strawberries will be evenly dispersed throughout. If your Greek yogurt was a little thin and runny, the strawberries will probably sink to the bottom of the cake.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Glaze for Cake:

Now it’s time for the yummy Strawberry Cream Cheese Glaze! For this, you’ll need about 4 mashed strawberries (about 1-2 tablespoons), cream cheese, a little vanilla extract, and powdered sugar.I used my food processor to create the glaze, but you could also use a hand or stand mixer. Spoon the delicious glaze evenly over the top of the cake, allowing it to run down the sides.

Serving Fresh Strawberry Cake

After the cake has cooled, cut it into pieces and serve! This cake is just bursting with strawberry flavor! Between the strawberries mixed in with the batter, and the strawberry glaze that’s drizzled over the top, one bite will leave you in strawberry heaven!
