  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Beat eggs, 1 cup strawberry puree, 1/2 cup melted butter, and milk until combined. Add to flour mixture; whisk until combined. Pour batter into prepared cake pans or baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly, then invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

  • Pour melted butter into a large bowl and sift in confectioners' sugar. Add enough pureed strawberries to make a spreadable frosting. Frost cooled cakes and garnish with fresh strawberries and mint.

Cook's Note:

You can also use frozen, thawed strawberries if desired.

If you aren't serving immediately, make the frosting thicker in consistency and be sure to refrigerate. If your frosting lumps, microwave it for roughly 30 seconds on medium power, then stir.

Recipe issues. For butter in cake is it 1/4 or 1/2. Ingredients say divided but directions say 1/2 Re Stawberry purée. Is it one cup then purées or a cup of already puréed? Came out dense. Frosting needed milk to. E spreadable. Read More
