As Seen On
Strawberries have a sweet yet fresh flavor. Paired with fluffy vegan strawberry cake, the strawberry flavor comes to life. Instead of puréeing the strawberries, we decided to cut them in half and place them in between layers of sweet frosting, so you get a strawberry in every bite. We added a tablespoon of strawberry extract to the vegan strawberry cake batter to intensify the strawberry flavor. Although you can use vanilla extract, the strawberry extract heightens the natural flavor of fresh strawberries. We hope you enjoy our spin on the Vegan Strawberry Cake.
- 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- ½ teaspoon Salt
- 3/4 cup Apple Sauce
- 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Strawberry Extract
- ½ cup Vegan Butter
- 4 cups Powdered Sugar
- 2 tablespoons coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 2 cups Strawberries (halved, stems removed)
- 2 tablespoons Strawberry Preserves
Coat three 8-inch cake pans with non-stick cooking spray and line the bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper circles.
Add the granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt, and whisk to combine.
Combine the apple sauce, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, and strawberry extract in a medium bowl.
Add the applesauce mixture to the flour sugar mixture and stir to combine.
Divide the strawberry cake batter between the cake pans.
Bake the vegan strawberry cake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Place the butter into a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat it for 1 minute. Next, add the vanilla extract and beat it for 30 seconds.
Add 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar to the butter and beat until combined. Next, add the coconut milk and beat it until combined. Add remaining 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time until the buttercream reaches your desired consistency.
Combine the fresh strawberries and strawberry preserves in a medium bowl.
Place one strawberry cake onto a cake stand. Add frosting and top with 1/3 of the strawberry mixture.
Repeat the steps with the other layers of strawberry cake and frost the entire cake.
Finally, garnish the strawberry cake with the remaining strawberries.
