Vegan Sponge Cake Recipes
Written by sugarmamabakeshop    
Hello! I am going to make this cake but I want to add 12 ounces of thawed strawberries chopped up into the batter. Am I going to need to make adjustments to the recipe? If so, what kind of adjustments? Also, I would like to reduce the sugar slightly (to 3/4 or 2/3 of a cup) would the strawberries add the moisture needed that the sugar gives so it will allow me to reduce the sugar without compromising the moisture of the cake? I know gluten free baking is tricky and it can be very dry when you reduce the sugar. Please help!!! Oh and just to let you know I plan on making a vegan strawberry cream cheese frosting that is low sugar and delicious to cover this cake in! It's for a birthday party!

I've made this a strawberry cake before by subbing the applesauce for pureed strawberries and adding crushed freeze-dried strawberries... With the chopped strawberries and reduced sugar I imagine it would work out but you might end up with a more muffin-like product? I would love to hear how it turns out for you :)
