Strawberry Spoon Cake

I doubled the fruit in this recipe and not mix the sugar with the berries as they were already sweet. This a super simple, tasty cake! This cake serves 8.

  • ½ cup/115 grams unsalted butter (1 stick), melted, plus more for greasing
  • 5 ounces/145 grams frozen and thawed or fresh, hulled strawberries (about 1 cup)
  • ⅔ cup/150 grams packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup/120 milliliters whole milk, at room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup/130 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8-inch (square or round) baking dish with butter. Set aside.
  • Using your hands or the back of a fork, mash the berries to release all their juices, and stir in 1/3 cup of the brown sugar.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar, milk and salt, then add the flour and baking powder and continue whisking just until the batter is smooth. Transfer the batter (it’s not much) to the greased baking dish, and spread evenly into corners.
  • Spoon the strawberries and all their juices over the top of the cake batter. Place in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or just when a toothpick comes out clean in the center. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 3 to 5 minutes before spooning into bowls. Serve warm with ice cream.
