Total Time : 1 Hr 5 Min


Serves : 12
  • 150 grams cup all purpose flour

  • 245 grams thick yogurt

  • 150 grams granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1-1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 118 ml vegetable oil

  • 1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • For Assembling: 200 grams whipped cream

  • 500 grams fresh strawberries, sliced


  • Take yogurt in a bowl, add sugar and mix well till the sugar dissolves.
  • Add baking powder and baking soda. Mix well.
  • Set this mixture aside for 5 minutes. You will see bubbles appearing.
  • Meanwhile pre-heat your oven at 180°C.
  • Grease a 7-inch cake tin and dust with flour. Keep aside.
  • Add vanilla extract and oil to the cake mixture and stir well.
  • Seive all-purpose flour twice and add this little by little to the cake mixture.
  • Fold well such that there are no lumps.
  • Transfer the cake mix to the prepared cake pan.
  • Bake at 180°C for 30-35 minutes or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes.
  • Now turn the cake over on to a wire rack and let it cool completely before frosting.
  • Trim the dome of the cake using a serrated knife and divide the cake in half, horizontally. With a hand held mixer, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks are formed. 
  • Place the first layer of cake on a serving plate or a cardboard cake round.
  • Spread a large dollop of whipped cream frosting and place some freshly sliced strawberries evenly.
  • Add the second cake layer and frost the top and sides with an offset spatula.
  • Smooth the top and sides until even using a bench scraper.
  • Garnish with sliced strawberries starting from the edge moving inwards.
