Strawberry-Chocolate Layer Cake

A great way to combine strawberry and chocolate flavors!

It's hard to beat a traditional layer cake for taste... especially a strawberry layer cake! You can buy a pre-blended strawberry cake mix at the store, but it's really easy to make a layer cake from scratch, and many people prefer to make their own. If that's you, then here's what you need to do:

Strawberry Layer Cake Dessert Recipe

  • 2 Cups (500 mL) All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup (125 mL) Cooking Oil
  • 3/4 Cup (175 mL) 2% (Reduced Fat) Milk
  • 1 1/4 Cups (300 mL) Granulated White ("Table") Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup (125 mL) Strawberry Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 mL) Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 mL) Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 mL) Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 Cups (500 mL) Your Favorite Frosting

Begin by mixing the milk, oil, eggs and vanilla extract. Follow this by adding in the sugar, salt and baking powder. Lastly, add the flour, a little at a time, until all of it has been mixed in. That's all it takes to make the cake batter.

To bake the cake, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Pour the cake batter into two 9-inch (23 cm) cake pans which have been pre-oiled or sprayed with baking spray. Bake the layers for about 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of each layer comes out clean.

Before frosting the cake, carefully level both layers of the cake by cutting the tops of the layers flat. Place the first layer on the cake storage dish upside-down so that you will be frosting the uncut surfaces of the cake layer. Frost the first layer, then very carefully set the second layer on top of the first, also upside-down. Frost the second layer, and the cake is finished!

You can use whatever frosting you like, of course. For the layer cake in this page's photograph, the recipe was turned into a chocolate-strawberry cake recipe by using chocolate frosting.
