To make the butter cake moonshine, you need to prepare the batter and the strawberry moonshine. Just collect the simple ingredients and start the preparation for your cake. 

For the batters, you should prepare the ingredients. Chop strawberries and pecans to add them to the batter. We even used a banana to enhance the flavor. However, it’s completely up to you. Just take the banana and cut it into small pieces to make the prep faster. 

Aside from preparing the strawberries, you just have to measure each ingredient. Our cake is fine for 16 servings. Well, the ingredients depend on the size of your cake so you have to decide on the size.

For now, let’s have a look at the ingredients we need for this cake recipe.

Ingredients that You Will Need Are:

You need the following ingredients to prepare the batter for your cake.

Strawberries: We will need 20 ounces of strawberries for the strawberry pie moonshine. You can get frozen strawberries from any nearby grocery store. Using fresh strawberries is a good idea to get a fresh strawberry taste. 

Butter: Butter is an essential ingredient for any type of cake. For our strawberry moonshine cake, we need 1 cup of butter. 

Sugar: Avoiding white sugar is always a healthy idea. You can use palm sugar, coconut sugar as an alternative to white sugar. In this recipe, we will be using 2 cups of sugar. 

Eggs: Keep 4 large eggs at room temperature. The eggs are important for our batter. 

All-purpose flour: It is the binding agent for our strawberry cake. We need 3 cups of flour for our cake. 

Baking Soda: Just 1 tablespoon of baking soda is enough to make our cake fluffy. 

Baking Powder: Adding ½ teaspoon of baking powder can help you increase the strawberry cakes volume and lighten the texture. 

Buttermilk: You would want your strawberry cake to be fluffy and moist. To make our cake more fluffy and moist, we will be adding ⅔ cups of buttermilk. 

Pecans: We will add ½ cup of chopped pecans to the batter. The pecans will produce a nutty flavor and release natural oil to make the cake moist. 

Now, we have to prepare ingredients for making the strawberry sauce. For the Strawberry moonshine sauce, you need to collect the following ingredients: 

Sugar: We will be adding 1 cup of sugar for our strawberry moonshine sauce. 

Strawberry: Slice ½ cup of fresh strawberries for the sauce. 

Vanilla Extract: ½ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract is essential to balance the sweetness of the sauce. 

Strawberry Extract: We will be adding ¼ teaspoon of strawberry extract to the sauce. Almond extract is another good alternative if you cannot find a strawberry extract. 

Step by Step Instructions for Strawberry Moonshine Pound Cake

Step 1: First, set the strawberry juice and chopped berries in two separate bowls. 

Step 2: Use a large mixing bowl for the cake batter. Mix cream and sugar until the mixture is light and smooth. 

Step 3: Time to add all 4 eggs one by one in the cake batter. We need to beat the creamed mixture until it’s smooth and fluffy. 

Step 4: Now, combine the strawberry, pecans, baking soda, baking powder, and all-purpose flour into the creamed mixture. Finally, add the buttermilk and mix the ingredients well. 

Step 5: Get a 10 inches fluted tube pan to bake a cake.  Then, pour the cake batter into the tube pan. 

Step 6: Bake the cake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 to 1 hour and 15 minutes. You can insert a toothpick to check whether the cake is ready or not. Check whether the toothpick comes out clean or not. IF the toothpick comes out without any batter, your cake is ready. 

Step 7: Remove the cake from the oven and let it stand for at least 10 minutes to cool down. 

Step 8: Now, get a small saucepan and put the strawberry juice, strawberry extract, and sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil over your stove and add the chopped strawberries. Then, cook the mixture for at least a minute. 

Step 9: Remove the strawberry sauce from the heat and stir it for a minute. Your strawberry moonshine is ready, and you can brush some of the sauce over your warm cake.
