Gluten Free Strawberry Cake without Jello

I wanted to make a fresh Strawberry Gluten Free Cake and I wanted to use my heart shaped cake tin and after an exhaustive search I found this recipe.

There are so many gluten free Strawberry Cake recipes and a lot of them had ingredients I didn't want to use or had too much fat or jelly powder! I just wanted a simple, fresh gluten free Strawberry Cake recipe and eventually found this one.

It smells so nice and the saving grace is the icing. It is delicious and smells so good. Just two ingredients. Strawberries and icing sugar! What more can you ask for.

Just one tip. Don't over mix. My little nephew was a little over zealous and it came out a little "rubbery".

Gluten Free Strawberry Cake

Ingredients
125 g olive oil margarine or butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups gluten free self-raising flour sifted
1/2 cup lactose free milk
1 cup fresh strawberries mashed

Strawberry Icing

3 fresh strawberries mashed medium
1 1/2 cups pure icing sugar

Method
Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced.
Grease and line a 22x21cm heart shaped springform cake tin or 20cm cake tin.
Beat the margarine and caster sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Fold in the flour and milk until just combined.
Add strawberries to the mix and fold together.
Spoon mixture into cake tin and place in pre-heated oven.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool before icing.

Strawberry icing
Add icing sugar to strawberries, mix until combined. If it is too liquid add more icing sugar until it is to your liking.

Spread onto cooled cake and serve.
