Healthier Strawberry Cake

I love cake! However, sometimes I have this ‘healthy vibe’ and then I don’t want to eat lots of butter. So I made this cake with olive oil! Great way to still have a nice cake, but with better fats.

Servings 1 Cake
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes


  • Oven
  • Cake Baking Tin


  • 4 Eggs
  • 180 gram Powdered Sugar
  • 200 ml Olive Oil
  • 200 gram Flour

  • Preheat the oven on 160 degrees celsius or 320 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Whisk the eggs until they are looking like a light yellow meringue texture.
  • Pour in the olive oil very slowly while whisking the eggs. Just to make sure the oil mixes well with the eggs.
  • When you are using dried strawberries, or other dried fruits, you can cut the strawberries in small pieces. Toss them around in a bowl with some flour in order to get all the fruits covered with a thin layer. This will make sure the fruits don't move too much during the baking process.
  • Then add the powdered sugar, extract, baking soda, lemon juice and flour. Mix with a spatula shortly. However, make sure all the lumps are out.
  • Bake for 55 minutes in the oven. Let it cool down completely before cutting/eating it.. If you can..
