1 9-inch cake


  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 ¼ cups pureed star fruit, divided

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries, divided

  • 2 ½ cups heavy cream

  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda together in a bowl.

  3. Beat 2 cups pureed star fruit, sugar, butter, and lemon juice in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually mix in dry ingredients until combined. Fold in 1 cup sliced strawberries. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a serving plate or cooling rack. Let cool, about 30 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, whip heavy cream, powdered sugar, and remaining 1/4 cup pureed star fruit together to make the icing.

  6. Spread icing over the cooled cake and top with remaining sliced strawberries.
