I am using my MacBook and the recipe has disappeared. I tried to pin this page from multiple places and still nothing. I made the puree yesterday and today when I went back in to make the cake the recipe was gone. Thank you for posting the recipe in the comments so that I can finish my baking for the day, but in the future I will not be using your page for anything, as it is not very reliable.

Hi Ellie – thank you for letting me know. Sorry for your frustration but please know my page is reliable – it’s been reliable since 2012. Sometimes things happen, especially with technology so I am sorry for inconveniencing you but the problem could actually be on your end and not on my end. I will definitely look into this and hope you enjoyed the cake.

sorry about that – I’ll look into this. Sometimes the url is miss directed in Pinterest – perhaps that is what is happening.

So sorry you’re having trouble. I just checked and it’s there, but here it is just in case!
2½ cups cake flour (spooned then leveled)
1½ cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, diced or thinly sliced
5 egg whites, room temperature
¾ cup milk (2% or whole preferred), room temperature
½ cup reduced strawberry puree (see below for ingredients and directions)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
¼ cup vegetable oil
Pink food coloring
1½ pounds strawberries, stems removed
Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup vegetable shortening
4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup reduced strawberry puree
First, make the reduced strawberry puree. Add fresh strawberries to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Pour into a medium saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring often until reduced by half and thick. Cool completely. I would suggest making this the night before or several hours before so that it’s completely cooled and ready for use!
To make the cake, preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease and flour two 8 inch cake pans; set aside.
Add the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into your mixer bowl and mix well.
With mixer on low-speed gradually add the chilled butter one piece at a time. Mix on medium-low speed until pea size crumbs form. Turn mixer off.
Whisk together all the wet ingredients in a bowl; egg whites, milk,1/2 cup strawberry puree, vanilla extract and vegetable oil.
Turn mixer on low-speed and add half of the wet ingredients then turn mixer to medium speed and mix for 90 seconds until thick, scrape down sides of the bowl. Add food coloring at this time if using. Turn mixer to low speed and add the rest of the wet ingredients in two additions mixing on medium speed for 20 seconds after each addition. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl.
Distribute batter evenly between the two cake pans and bake for 35-40 minutes until done. Check with a toothpick if needed. Let cool completely before frosting.
To make the buttercream, add the butter and shortening to a mixer and mix well. Add sifted powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Lastly, add salt and strawberry puree and mix for 1 minute on high speed, scrape down sides of bowl. Frost cake and garnish as desired. Chill cake in a sealed container to keep fresh for up to a week.
