Place strawberries about 1 cm away from the edge of the 
cake tin so they don't become strawberry jam and stick to the tin. 

I tried to make this dairy free Strawberry Cake with almond meal, honey and rice milk but failed dismally. It was in the oven for over 2 hours. It just burnt and stayed raw in the middle. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.

I have not given up I will try again. Going grain free and paleo is a difficult business. I am new to this way of cooking so learning every day. Stay tuned I will figure it out soon.

In the meantime enjoy as is until I can get it healthier!

Dairy Free Strawberry Cake

85g milk free margarine, room temperature
¾ cup caster sugar
1 ½ cups plain flour, sifted
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 large egg
½ cup + 2 tablespoons lactose free milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
350g strawberries, hulled and cut in half
Extra sugar for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350F. Line a 22cm/9 inch springform cake tin with paper and lightly spray with cooking oil.

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy about 3 minutes. Add the egg, milk and vanilla and continue beating until combined.

Stir in the flour until all ingredients are well combined.

Pour the cake mixture into the lined tin, arrange the strawberries around the edge cut side down. Sprinkle a little extra sugar on top.

Place cake in oven for 10 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 160°C/325F, and continue baking for 50 – 60 minutes until golden brown or a skewer comes out clean.
