EASY STRAWBERRY CAKE
195g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
tsp sea salt (used a good grind)
150g raw sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
tsp vanilla extract
50g preferred oil for baking
160g natural yoghurt (used Greek style)
140g chopped strawberries, by knife
140g strawberries, halved lengthways
2 tsp raw sugar extra
Icing sugar to dust

Pre-heat oven to 175C.  Spray a 20cm springform tin with non-stick spray and line base with baking paper.

In a med bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set it aside.

Place 150g raw sugar into TM bowl.  Mill 4 secs/speed 10, leave in bowl.
Add Butterfly then the egg and beat 2 mins/speed 4. 
Remove Butterfly, scrape down bowl.  You want the batter very light in colour.

Add in the vanilla, oil and yoghurt.  Mix 6 secs/speed 4, scrape down bowl.
Add flour and mix 6 secs/speed 4, scrape down bowl and under blades.

Transfer batter to a med bowl and fold in the chopped strawberries with a spatula. Transfer to the cake tin.
Top with the halved strawberries, pressing in slightly.
Sprinkle the top with the extra raw sugar and bake for approx 45 55 mins (depending on your oven) until a skewer comes out clean.

Remove tin to a wire rack and cool for about 10 mins before releasing the sides of the tin and removing the paper from the base.  Leave on the rack until completely cooled.

Gently lift the cake off the baking paper and place on a serving plate. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
Lovely as is, but extra nice with a drizzle of double cream.

That looks lovely JulieO. Cakes with yoghurt are always so moist. I will definitely make it.

Thank you girls.  :)

The next day I had a friend visit and I found the top had gone a little moist, so after slicing her a piece I put it in the Turbo oven (air fryer would be good too) on lowest setting for about 5 mins while I was making us a cup of tea.  It put it back to just how it was when first made without drying the cake out itself.  :)
