In this strawberry cake recipe, you can even add puréed strawberries to Greek yogurt and combine it well for glazing the cake. Replacing whipping cream with full-fat Greek yogurt is a healthy option. Once the cake is baked, let it cool completely before you begin glazing just to prevent the glaze from getting runny. If you wish to cut down the calories from sugar, then go for half and half of sugar and Stevia ratio. Stevia leaf is a natural sweetener with zero calories (source: www.stevia.com). For vegans, a good dairy-free option would be to use coconut cream in the place of the heavy whipping cream. For the strawberry filling, let the sugar and strawberries sit together until the juices are released. Since this is a strawberry cake, making use of this step in the recipe will make a huge difference regarding the flavor.
