Strawberry yoghurt cake (toddler friendly!)

This stunning strawberry yoghurt cake has no refined sugar and is perfect for your toddlers afternoon tea (or for visiting friends with little ones, over a hot drink).

It’s moist, sweet and packed with fresh strawberries – I like to serve mine with whipped cream and a few extra strawberries on top – try it for your next afternoon tea, you won’t regret it.

I’ve used strawberries in this recipe, but you can replace them with two cups of fresh or frozen bluerries, or one punnet of each. I sometimes buy and extra punnet of strawberries (so three in total) and thickened cream (to whip) for presentation, if I have guests coming over. Enjoy!

(P.s., check out how gorgeous these strawberries are!)

Here’s everything you’ll need.
