There’s nothing like a slice of moist, and flavorful strawberry cake to lighten up a dull week, made with fresh fruit and a touch of lemon, almond, and vanilla.




  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or using a electric hand mixer, cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. This will take approximately 7-10 minutes.
  4. Mix in vanilla and almond extracts until incorporated. Add egg yolks in one at a time, beating in each one before adding the next.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they form firm peaks.
  6. Fold half of the flour mixture and half of the egg whites into the batter. Once combined, fold in the remaining flour mixture and egg whites.
  7. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Scrape the batter into the pan, spread with a spatula to form an even layer.
  8. Arrange the strawberries on top, spaced evenly over the surface of the batter.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  10. Let cool completely in the pan before dusting with confectioners sugar.
