Ingredients

For the Cake

  • 8 ounces fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 11/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons of butter melted and cooled
  • 2 large eggs

For the Cream Cheese Spread

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions

For the Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Trace the base of a 9-inch round cake pan on parchment paper, then cut out the circle from the paper. Rub the inside of the pan with butter, then stick the circle to the bottom. Set the lined pan aside.
  2. Wash the strawberries, pat dry, then trim off the tops. Place the strawberries in a food processor or blender and puree completely.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the strawberry puree, sugars, and salt until well combined.
  4. Add in the flour, baking powder, butter, and eggs, then stir together until just combined. Don't overmix. Pour the batter into the cake pan and smooth out the top until it is even.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Let the pan cool on a rack for 20 minutes, then run a knife around the end of the cake to loosen it and remove it from the pan to finish cooling.

For the Cream Cheese Spread

  1. Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until softer and slightly fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and beat again. Add the lemon juice and beat until very soft and spreadable. Spread on the cake slices when served (or over the whole cake, if you're serving the whole cake at once). Garnish with additional strawberries if desired.
