INSTRUCTIONS

The compote should be made first. Using a saucepan, combine the sugar and strawberries, and then place the pot over medium heat. At the point where the strawberries start to exude their juices and bubble up, reduce the heat to a simmer and add the lemon juice.

Carry on with the cooking process at a low simmer for ten to fifteen minutes, stirring the mixture every few minutes to prevent it from becoming thick like jam. After it has reached the desired consistency, transfer it to a clean bowl and let it to cool down.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Put parchment paper in a pan that is 9 inches by 13 inches.
Sugar and lemon zest should be rubbed together in a big bowl until the sugar becomes fragrant and takes on a yellow hue.

After sifting in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, whisk the mixture until it is completely and evenly combined. The eggs, yoghurt, vanilla, oil, melted butter, strawberry compote, and milk are all mixed together in a medium bowl using a whisk until the mixture is perfectly smooth.

Should you decide to utilise it, add food colouring to the mixture. The wet ingredients should be poured into the bowl containing the dry ingredients, and then the mixture should be whisked by hand or with an electric hand mixer set to a low speed until it is completely blended and smooth. The batter should not be over-mixed.
Spread the batter onto the pan that has been prepared, and then dollop the leftover strawberry compote on top in a random pattern. After incorporating it with a knife, bake it for 22 to 25 minutes, or until it has a light golden colour and a skewer that has been pushed into the centre comes out clean.

After moving the pan to a wire rack, wait ten minutes before transferring the cake to the rack so that it can cool without any further condensation. Beat the cream cheese until it is completely smooth for the icing. After adding just one tablespoon of sugar, continue beating the mixture to assist in breaking down the cheese and making it smoother.

After adding only two to three tablespoons of cream, continue beating until the mixture is smooth once more. Next, add a little bit more cream and continue to whisk until the mixture is fully smooth and free of lumps. Keep beating in the cream in a slow and steady manner, and once it is smooth, whisk it until it forms stiff peaks.

First, incorporate the sugar and vanilla, and then incorporate the strawberry compote. You may choose to stop adding the remaining tablespoon of strawberry compote if it is too runny after you have added one tablespoon of the compote; otherwise, you may continue adding the remaining tablespoon.

20 minutes should be spent in the refrigerator with the bowl. As it matures, it will become more viscous.
Swirl the leftover strawberry compote over the top of the cake after it has been cooled, and then spread the frosting over the cake. As soon as possible, serve, and then place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.

Notes

In essence, the strawberry reduction is a quick jam. If any remain, you may spoon some over ice cream for a crisp and refreshing topping or spoon a bit onto a plate before adding a slice of cake on top to serve.

If the layers have domed tops, trim the domes with a serrated knife so that the layers can be stacked uniformly. Use cake strips for layers that are precisely even.

Cake strips prevent a dome from forming in the center of the cake by maintaining the outside edge of the pan colder, which guarantees that the cake rises at the same rate throughout. See my tutorial on making your own DIY cake strips if you’d rather not buy any.
