Strawberry Buttermilk Cake

Strawberry Buttermilk Cake

I bookmarked this recipe as soon as I saw it on the confessions of a bakeaholic, I would have made it right away but I waited for the strawberries from the farm, it was well worth it.
This cake takes minutes to make, it is light, flavourful and has an incredibly tender crumb. I made a few minor changes to the original recipe and this will definitely be one that I will make again…

We got these lovely strawberries from the Ferme Van Velzen, they are located in Boucherville, about 20 km outside of Montreal. The strawberries are available for U-Pick everyday and they are also available for sale on their kiosks.

  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour plus more for the baking dish
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp canola oil plus more for the baking dish
  • 1 ¼ cup strawberries
  • Confectioner’s sugar for serving (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350F, grease and flour an 8×8 inch oven proof dish or cake pan, set aside. Wash, hull and quarter the strawberries. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. In another bowl combine the lemon juice, zest, buttermilk, egg, and canola oil. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix with a fork, fold in the strawberries using a spatula and pour the cake batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Let the cake cool and serve with a light dusting of confectioner’s sugar.

    Yogurtla olur da cirpip su koymadan ayran kivamina getirirsen hamurla da guzel ozdeslesir gibi geliyor. :) Shortcake’i de tavsiye ederim!

    This delicious cake is fast becoming a family favorite. I have made it several times, each time reducing the sugar, now at 1 Tbsp. Probably not as sweet as most folks would like but we continue to enjoy it. I tried it with fresh peaches, also very good. However our Thanksgiving guests voted for the strawberry over the peaches. This is the first time I have used buttermilk and love the batter it produces. Thanks…love your blog, your comments and photos and am passing it on to friends and family. Many thanks to Robin for signing me up…Norma

    Thank you for your comment Norma, you made my day! I am so glad you are following the blog and tried the recipe, I’ll make it with less sugar next time too.

  • Megi, this cake looks so delicate and so pretty! I am waiting for my strawberries to ripen. It’s still July and I am barely seeing some pink on them:). But this cake would be perfect for some of my strawberries…or maybe even some raspberries. I am thinking this cake can easily take on quite a few different fruits. Can’t wait to try it!
