A little Trex, for greasing

Strawberry Cream Cake

Strawberry Cream Cake

125g Self-raising flour

1 tsp Baking powder

Pinch of salt 115g

Caster sugar 75g

Trex, at room temperature

Egg replacer (equivalent of 2 eggs)

3 tbsp dairy free Milk

½ tsp Vanilla extract

1 tsp Finely grated lemon zest


3-4 tbsp Strawberry jam

150ml Vegan cream

150g Strawberries, sliced


Step 1: Position the oven shelves towards the centre of the oven. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan oven 160°C/Gas Mark 4. Lightly grease two 18cm (7in) sandwich tins with a little Trex, line their bases with circles of greaseproof paper, then lightly grease the paper.

Step 2: Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, Trex, egg replacer, dairy free milk, vanilla extract and lemon zest. Use a wooden spoon to beat the mixture together until smooth and creamy - this will only take 1-2 minutes.

Step 3: Share the mixture equally between the prepared tins and level the surfaces. Bake for 18-20 minutes. To test that the cakes are cooked, they should be golden brown, and when touched lightly the tops should spring back into place. Put the tins on to a wire rack to cool for a few minutes.

Step 4: Remove the cakes from their tins and cool on a wire rack, then remove the lining paper. When completely cool, sandwich the cakes together with strawberry jam, whipped vegan cream and sliced strawberries. Spread whipped vegan cream over the top and arrange more sliced strawberries over the surface.
