  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1½ cups fresh strawberries, diced
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • One teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional for topping)


  • Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9-inch round cake pan.
  • Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Set aside.
  • Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Incorporate Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, mixing well after each addition.
  • Add Sour Cream: Gradually add the sour cream to the wet mixture, mixing until smooth and creamy.
  • Combine Dry and Wet Mixtures: Slowly add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Fold in Strawberries: Gently fold the diced strawberries into the batter until evenly distributed.
  • Prepare Topping: In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and ground cinnamon to create the topping.
  • Layer Batter and Topping: Pour half the batter into the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture over the batter.
  • Repeat Layers: Add the remaining batter on top, spreading it evenly, and sprinkle the remaining brown sugar-cinnamon mixture over the batter.
  • Optional Nuts: If desired, sprinkle chopped walnuts or pecans over the top of the cake batter.
  • Bake: Place the cake pan in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
