In addition to being mouth wateringly delicious, strawberries are loaded with anti-oxidants and have beneficial effects on cardiovascular health and blood sugar.
So it was a no-brainer to make our May birthday baby a strawberry cake
Ping's Strawberries Yogurt Cake
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup of sugar
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup diced strawberries
low fat cream cheese
1 cup sliced strawberries
Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 9 inch spring form pan or other similarly sized pans. Beat the liquid ingredients and sugar together until fully combined and then add dry ingredients and stir until fully combined. Fold in the strawberries. Bake for 50 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean.
Cool and spread with the cream cheese and the top with the sliced strawberries
