Heather joins us with another post in her series Aldi-licious here at Simply Frugal Living. Heather’s recipes feature ingredients purchased exclusively from Aldi!
Aldi has been having some great sales on strawberries recently! In fact, I’ve walked away with 48 pounds at a time to freeze for smoothies throughout the year. And I know they’ll be having their blueberries on sale sometime in July and I bet you could try this cake with blueberries too. This little tea cake is perfect for Sunday afternoon — it’s easy, colorful, and who doesn’t love freshly whipped cream?!
1 cup all-purpose flour (you can easily substitute a gluten-free flour blend if you need to!)
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 ounces strawberries sliced in half
freshly whipped heavy cream with 2 Tbsp. of confectioner’s sugar added while whipping
Grease a 9-inch round cake pan and line base with parchment paper, or dust with flour. Cream sugar and butter. Add flour, baking powder, salt, eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Using a spatula, scrape the cake batter into prepared pan. Arrange the strawberries (seeds up) in a circular fashion around the pan.
Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean (except for strawberry juice). Remove from oven and serve lukewarm. Serve with whipped cream and extra strawberry slices.
