Cake Desserts: Heavenly Strawberry Cake Recipe
This Semi Homemade Cake Recipe will be a crowd pleaser and includes fresh strawberries but you actually make a simple syrup with them to add to the mixture. In the past when I had cakes fall apart I think I added too many fresh strawberries. Using a strawberry puree to replace the liquid in the recipe, creates just the right balance to keep your cake moist but not too moist.
So now we have added everything to the white cake mix and look at the lovely color of our cake. This is for my teenage son’s birthday, but he is not bothered by pink.
All baked and ready to get frosted. I put my layers in the freezer for about an hour or so just to be sure they were hard enough to take on the stiffer frosting. You could also make the layers ahead of time and then frost in a few weeks if you needed to.
I am keeping the frosting process photos for the frosting post but it worked out beautifully. Want a slice?
Everyone really enjoyed this strawberry cake recipe and I preferred it a little cold. Definitely keep it in the freezer for any long duration. Take the cake out about 30 minutes before serving.
Who in your family would love a slice of this strawberry and cream cake? I might have to rename it strawberry and cream cake!!
