Here is a cake that does perfect justice to it’s pretty looks.. moist n yummy yumm yumm…??? If u do not love creamy cakes but still would love to devour a pastryish cake, this is the one to go for.

When I say pastryish, it does taste a lot like a pastry even in the absence of any cream due to the syrup the cake is soaked in. So this is the one to go for if u do not have any cream handy to make a spl. cake.

This cake do not need any adornments n can be had by itself. So here goes the recipe for delicious n oozy Strawberry ghee cake.

I have used Strawberry emulsion here. It could also be done using Strawberry syrup or any other syrup/emulsion of ur choice.
