Strawberry Pound Cake Recipe

Spring has finally sprung here in Minnesota. I think the threat of any more snow storms are long gone (knock on wood). Green grass is peeking through and the weather is finally in the 60’s.

You guys don’t even know how much I love the warm weather. I should really move somewhere where it’s warm year-round, but Minnesota, despite the frigid cold is just home to me.

So when spring finally arrives I bake a ton with fruit. Strawberries make an appearance quite a bit in this house. I don’t know if this is a good thing or if my kids get sick and tired of it, but one thing I do know is that they went crazy for this Strawberry Pound Cake!

What’s better than having a quick and easy pound cake that whips up in minutes and in one bowl? I know the faster a recipe for me is key because hey, four kids take a lot of work and they are always hungry.

HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY POUND CAKE

  1. What sets this cake apart is that it is loaded with delicious Greek yogurt. You guys, the yogurt really makes a huge difference in this Strawberry Pound Cake! It’s super moist and boy when it comes to cakes like this, that really is what matters!
  2. I also added a little almond extract flavoring (aff) in the batter because I absolutely love almond and strawberries together. You can very well switch it out with Vanilla, or even lemon if you so choose but almond is one of my favorite flavors so I went with that!
  3. The little pops of color from the strawberries are super fun and give it a nice color contrast, not to mention a delicious flavor burst in your mouth. There are not only strawberries in the batter but in the glaze as well! I put a handful of strawberries in a ziploc bag and literally smash them up! This breaks them up into small bits and lets out all the yummy juices. Add some powdered sugar and you’ve got a delicious glaze for your strawberry pound cake!
  4. The glaze really sets it all into motion. I literally glaze almost all my breads or cakes, it’s just something I do. It makes them colorful and it gives them that ultimate burst of flavor for sure.

    1. It’s per slice, if you cut the loaf into 10 slices. The glaze adds about 100 calories per slice, so you could always leave that off. It’s definitely a dessert.

  1. Good flavor, but it’s a bit oily in taste and texture. I wonder how can I fix this or if I can substitute the oil for something else?

  2. This recipe is amazing, I love it and it was easy. It did take longer in my oven by about 20 minutes. I will be doubling the recipe next time.
    Could I use this same recipe but use blueberries instead?

  3. Wonderful cake! Moist and delicious. I have made it several times and I always get rave reviews.

  4. Sorry to say but I followed this recipe exactly and it was not pound cake consistency at all. It was very moist but oily. The inside of the cake was not yellow like pictured here, it was brownish. I threw it out. Disappointed!

  5. Delicious summer cake! I used dairy free coconut yogurt to accommodate my niece’s dairy allergy and it worked beautifully.

    1. Without the glaze it will freeze very well. Double wrap it with plastic wrap and put it in a freezer bag.
