Strawberry Red Velvet Cake

This Strawberry Red Velvet Cake was a hit in my office! I had a really hard time slicing it, since the cake was small, and I had a large number of slices to cut…All I can say is that it disappeared in a minute.

I finally realized how desperately I need a bigger baking pan!

Red Velvet Cake:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbs red food coloring
  • 1 tsp apple vinegar
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 pound cream cheese
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1- 2 tbs lemon juice

strawberry mixture:

  • water
  • a few tbs of strawberry jam + strawberries sliced


Red Velvet Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Lightly oil 8 -inch round cake pan.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla.
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
  • Pour the batter into prepared 20 cm round cake pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 70-80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. (After 50 minutes of baking I covered the cake with aluminum cake, to prevent the top from burning).
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely.


  • Combine butter and cream cheese until well blended.
  • Add powdered sugar and vanilla.
  • Beat until creamy.

strawberry jam mixture:

  • 3/4 a few tablespoons of jam with 1,5 – 2 tablespoons of water.
  • Set aside.


  • Cut a cake into four layers.
  • Put your first cake layer on the plate, use a pastry brush to brush the jam mixture over the entire cake. Make sure you get the edges of the cake covered as they tend to dry out the most.
  • Then, spread a part of the frosting evenly across layer.
  • Put the second cake layer on top, soak with jam mixture and frost.
  • Repeat with the rest of your layers.
  • Cover the top of the cake with the remaining frosting.
  • Decorate with sliced strawberries.
