A Day for Strawberry Cake

Summer has Come

It is not officially summer yet but don’t tell the farmers markets, almost every table is overflowing with fresh strawberries. The air is filled with their sweet scent before you have even reached the stand. And what better way to enjoy an overload of summer berries then in a cake.

Sweet Strawberry Cake adapted from La Tartine Gourmande

1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 cup millet flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

pinch of sea salt

4 tbsp ghee

1/4 cup honey

1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scrapped out

2 large eggs

1/2 cup canned coconut milk

6 ounces strawberries, sliced

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine the flours, baking powder, soda and salt in a large bowl and set aside. In another bowl combine ghee, honey and vanilla seeds until whipped and mixed through. Then stir in eggs followed by the coconut milk. Add the wet to dry, stir till a batter forms, then fold in the strawberries. Pour into a greased 9-inch dish and  bake for 30 mins and/or until golden brown on top.

I highly recommend looking at how La Tartine makes the cake ;) I made substitutions with what I had on hand and added in a bit more strawberries then I should have. Resulting in a cake that was absolutely delicious though leaning a bit to heavily on the moist side.

Enjoy ~
