Strawberry Breakfast Cake


When it comes to spring I try to enjoy all the yummy fresh berries I can get my hands on. There are plenty of fresh strawberries here in Florida and they are so ripe and juicy.

It must be the Florida sun, I live a couple of hours away from Plant City Florida and they are national known for producing some of the best-tasting strawberries in the country. As a matter of fact, we have been enjoying fresh strawberries all winter long, from December through to April.

I made some Strawberry Protein Pancakes with a batch and they were so delicious that I’m now planning to make another batch of my Strawberry Oat Bars soon.


Strawberry Breakfast Cake

This Strawberry Breakfast Cake is so moist with just the right texture. I used maple syrup to sweeten it but you could substitute with coconut sugar and reduce the amount of liquid. I used gluten-free oat flour (I blend mine in a high-speed blender) and almond flour (Bob’s Red Mills). 

I added strawberry pieces for a surprising burst of strawberry flavor in every bite. I decided to top the cake with a creamy strawberry frosting.

To make the frosting, I used cashews but I have also used almond flour, you will just have to process longer in a food processor.  Enjoy this cake for breakfast lunch or supper!

    1. Do I need the chia seeds in the recipe? I noticed you didn’t specify ground chia seeds which leads me to believe they are whole. Can I leave them out or is it necessary for the structure of the cake? (I don’t like whole chia seeds) :)

        I used whole chia seeds, you can substitute with ground flaxseeds. I added it to help with the structure of the cake but oat flour doesn’t really need it so it may work for you. I just didn’t try it without.
