Hi all and welcome once more to the recipe corner of my blog. Last week I did raspberry muffins & strawberry cake....both came really good but the cake was my favourite. Here are the recipes for you and enjoy baking!



Strawberry cake:



1 cup butter

4 eggs

1 cup sugar

11/2 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour



1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

3/4 cup mashed strawberries

In a bowl beat butter till creamed and fluffy. Gradually add sugar till light & fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time. Stir together the dry ingredients & add to the batter till thoroughly blended. Turn half the batter into greased loaf tin then add the strawberries and the rest of batter. Bake in 325 degrees oven till cake tests done ( about 60 mins).

Raspberry Muffins

3/4 cup milk

1/3 cup cooking oil

13/4 cups flour

In a small bowl beat egg add milk and oil set aside. In a large bowl stir flour, sugar, baking powder & alt. Add the egg mixture stirring till just moistened (the batter shouldn't be lumpy).

Those look interesting. Thanks for the share. I'm not a sugar or salt person. If I was to make these, I would replace the sugar either with a fruit or a vegetable and that would be my intake for sugar.
