Strawberry Cake



  • 1/4 cup canola or plain vegetable oil
  • 1 cup plain flour (maida) – not self rising, just all-purpose.
  • 1 and 1/2 full teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 250 grams strawberries, cut into quarters


  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  • Mix the egg, milk, vinegar and oil in a big bowl.
  • Add the sugar and vanilla essence. Mix well.
  • Add the flour and baking powder, and mix well with a whisk till smooth.
  • Pour the batter into a round baking dish, which has been buttered or oiled a bit on the sides and bottom to prevent the cake from sticking. I ended up using a pie-pan. It looked cuter in it :)
  • Now mix one tablespoon sugar with the quartered strawberries. Arrange the strawberries on the top of the batter, pushing each piece of strawberry in a bit into the batter.
  • Bake it in the oven at 180 degrees for 60 minutes or till the cake is done and a fork inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
