I am sorry, I am late. I should have posted this yesterday, but I have postponed the making of the dish until the last minute and yesterday was a shutdown day. So I couldn’t bake and I couldn’t post. I made this cake the first thing in the morning, but with Sruti at home, I need to take care of everything before I sit before computer. I usually bake breads with wheat flour, but I am not a great fan of wheat flour cakes. The reason is that I don’t know how to bake with wheat flour. After seeing so many of my friends making delicious treats with wheat flour, I have decided o my new year resolution. I will try my level best on avoiding refined flour and sugar. I decided to start with my resolution this week itself rather than waiting for the new year to begin.
I added some corn flour to the batter to make the cake lighter as wheat flour results in denser cakes. I have also used the naattu sakkarai / brown sugar instead of refined sugar and I should say the result is amazing. Next year you are going to see more of whole wheat cakes in this blog. I got a pack of strawberry and as always, they were tasteless. Not sweet and not sour, it is really bad to eat. But it is quite expensive and I didn’t want to waste the pack. That is the main reason I made this cake because the sweet cake will surely compensate on the bland fruits. With just 2 tbs of butter, the cake turned out so soft, moist and buttery. And look at the texture! I was really happy to see this type of texture in a wheat cake. The procedure is quite simple and you can vary the toppings as per the fruits or nuts you have in the pantry. You can even add the nuts in the batter for crunch.

Cool on wire rack for a while and remove the loaf from the tin.
Slice it when warm and serve it with some sliced strawberries.

Madam, I hv a query. My cake does nt rise? Why?
Check your baking powder and soda. If there is problem with them, the cake won’t rise.
Strawberry tea cake is inviting me, even i love to add strawberries in bakes if they are not good in taste. Well done and thats incredible that you have baked with wheat flour. Eagerly waiting to see more bakes with wheat flour in future.
My cake did not rise. I went through the recipe to see if I missed anything but no. What could have gone wrong I wonder
Check your baking powder. Only that can cause the problem. And also check whether the measurement of ingredients are as per recipe.
Hi … Can you give me ideas …o don’t have baking powder and in the lockdown can’t get any pls tell me an alternative possibly?
Instead of one tsp baking powder, you can use 1/3 tsp of baking powder and a juice of one lemon.
I love simple strawberry cakes like these and your wheat flour version looks perfect texture wise.
That cake looks so good! I used to bake a lot with aatta, now I don’t know why automatically I end up with apf! I have to get back to it… since strawberries are in season, definitely making a cake or muffin is on the agenda…
The strawberry studded whole wheat cake is very tempting. I am yet to try cooking/baking with palm sugar. Bookmarking to try.
Wow, your strawberry cake looks sooo soft, moist and fluffy. LOVE the addition of whole strawberries on top.
The strawberry studded cake is so gorgeous and for the wheat flour the texture has come out so well.Even I am bit scared to try cake with wheat flour but after seeing so many bakes I tried couple of cake recipes and turned out good.
The cake looks fantastic Gayathri, even I used nattu sakkari for couple of bakes and loved how good it tasted…
Wholewheat cakes are the rage. Nice to see your experiment worked out.
Looking so good with whole wheat! Strawberries are everywhere and perfect season to make this loaf.
Please pass on that slice with a dollop of fresh cream. The whole wheat cake looks yum.
The strawberry tea cake with wheat flour sounds great. Kudos for making the recipe and posting it on the same day. Wow.
Loved this whole wheat studded with fresh strawberries.. this is one healthy nutritious bake, so apt for kids lunchboxes or snacks!!
wholewheat tea cakes with a hint of strawberry- my little one would love this a lot as she’s a huge fan of strawberries…
eggless whole wheat strawberry tea cake came out perfectly soft and moist. great idea of spreading strawberries on top. such a healthy and great snack recipe.
I usually use whole wheat pastry flour for cakes as pastry flour has less protein resulting in very soft and tender crumb but not sure if that is available there in India. Regardless, your cake looks very soft and moist.
Last month, I too made fresh strawberry cake for my FIL’s birthday and it was so yum. So can very well imagine how moist and delicious this cake would be. By using WWF and brown sugar, you have made it healthy
This strawbwerry studded cake look so good . Perfect with a cup of coffee
wow gayathri, those plump strawberries on top looks perfect! the texture of the cake is bang on!!!
