Lemon Strawberry Pound Cake

Strawberry Lemon Pound Cake made with fresh strawberries, lots of lemon and easy to find pantry ingredients.

This Strawberry Pound Cake recipe combines my two seasonal favorites, fresh strawberries and lemon, in one dessert.

I love strawberries. And I love pound cakes. Hence, a strawberry pound cake made perfect sense in my world. Moist, buttery and rich with fruit fragrance of strawberries and punch of lemon.. this cake is so epic, you will be missing something if you don't try it.

Fresh fruity strawberries, lemon and sugar!! Does that remind you something else too? 



Season of colors and fresh bright flavors! 

This cake sums all of the above in a buttery Pound Cake or a Strawberry Lemonade Pound Cake, if I may :)


Fresh Strawberry Cake!

I love adding fresh fruits to cakes.. Have you tried my fresh Clementine Cake? If you have not, please do! It is gluten free cake with amazing flavors of fresh whole clementines! Oh, and Mango Pound Cake, and Mango Cheesecake are like summer-flavors-at-best! (must try)

So, no surprise I wanted to share a fresh strawberry cake too. Is...

Savita's Notes:

*Do a tooth pick test and bake until it comes out clean. If cake start tuning brown before toothpick comes out clean, lightly cover cake top with aluminium foil and continue baking.
