Delicious Strawberry Pound Cake with Easy Homemade Glaze

Sharing is caring!

Strawberries are in season again and the kids are begging to go to the local pick you own and get a couple of punnets but before that I wanted to make a delicious strawberry cake to share with my friends for our weekly coffee and catch up. This strawberry pound cake is amazingly delicious and one of my favourites to make as soon as the strawberries are in season.

Fresh Strawberry Cake with Glaze

The secret to making this strawberry cake really moist is that we use Greek yoghurt in it. This combined with the vegetable oil makes a cake that is particularly light and tasty. Add in the homemade strawberry glaze and it’s fantastic.

The diced strawberries within the cake add an extra flavour that makes it perfect for summer coffee mornings in the garden.

Strawberry Glaze

The strawberry glaze that we have added to the top is so simple to make, just strawberries and powdered sugar.

The strawberries need to be thoroughly smashed, something that my kids love to help with. We smash then with a fork or if the kids are feeling particularly “helpful” then they may use a potato masher.

Which ever way the smashed strawberries mean that you don’t need to add any liquid in with the powdered sugar to create the glaze. But be warned you have to resist the temptation to avoid eating the cake before the glaze has set!
