  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 cups granulated white sugar
  • 23 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 23 all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Strawberry Frosting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees | Line three 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add oil and vanilla and mix to combine.
  2. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition, starting and ending with the flour mixture.
  3. Using a spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the batter, take care to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl so that all is well combined, and don’t over mix.
  4. Evenly pour cake batter between each cake pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.


  1. Beat butter with an electric mixer until creamy about 2-4 minutes.
  2. Add salt and vanilla, then gradually add sugar, ½ cup at a time, waiting until each addition is completely mixed in before adding the next.
  3. Mix in powdered freeze-dried strawberries.
  4. Add cream 1 tablespoon at a time and then beat on high for 30 seconds.
  5. Spread frosting over the cake quickly as the frosting gets firmer with the passage of time.
  6. Decorate with fresh strawberries and enjoy!


You can bake the cake in a 9-by-13 cake pan as well.

I double the frosting when making a layer of cake.

In the video, my mom added 1 small package of strawberry jello to the dry mix of this cake. We found the cake to be a little sweet and next time we make it we will add an extra 8 zo-freezed dried powdered strawberries to the white cake batter.
