A healthy option for baking the cake in this fresh strawberry cake recipe would be to go for a gluten-free cake mix instead of a regular cake mix. Gluten-free recipes are currently popular because not only do they make a great substitution but also help in cutting down the calories when compared to the regular cake mix. Strawberries are loaded with anti-oxidants and the nutritional value of strawberries mainly comes from vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and fiber. Strawberries are low in calories and can be eaten not just in desserts but in salads as well. The nutritional value of strawberries is the best excuse for baking recipes that use fresh strawberries.
In this fresh strawberry cake recipe, you can even add puréed strawberries to Greek yogurt in the place of cream cheese and combine it well before frosting the cake. Replacing cream cheese with full-fat Greek yogurt is a healthy option. Once the cake is baked, let it cool completely before you begin frosting it to prevent the strawberry frosting from melting. If you are not able to get fresh strawberries you can use frozen strawberries for this recipe. Always remember to measure one cup of strawberries before you mash them as this would make a big difference in the texture of the cake just in case you use too many or too little.
