  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup strawberry puree


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients.
  6. Divide the batter equally into three separate bowls.
  7. In one bowl, mix in the unsweetened cocoa powder until well combined.
  8. In another bowl, mix in the strawberry puree until well combined.
  9. Leave the third bowl as plain vanilla batter.
  10. Using a separate spoon or scoop for each batter, drop spoonfuls of the different batters into the prepared cake pans. Swirl the batters together gently with a butter knife to create a marbled effect.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  12. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
