Perfect for birthdays, Valentine’s Day, celebrations or just because…you can’t go wrong with this delicious Strawberry and Cream Cake.

Ingredients:

Strawberry Puree

  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water

Cake

  • One box white cake mix
  • 1 box of strawberry gelatin
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup strawberry puree

Whipped Cream topping

  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup roughly chopped strawberries (optional)

HOW TO MAKE A STRAWBERRY CREAM CAKE

Place all of the ingredients for the strawberry puree into a small saucepan and bring to a boil for one minute and then remove from heat. Add into a food processor and process until there are no large lumps. You can also use a potato masher or a fork to smash the strawberries as small as possible.

Prepare 3 6” cake pans with nonstick spray and preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

Combine all dry ingredients for the cake and go through thoroughly with a whisk, this will replace sifting and make sure there are no large lumps. Add in remaining wet ingredients including puree and mix until smooth.

Topping:

You can use pre-made whipped topping and just spread on the cake, or you can use this homemade method.

Pour the heavy whipping cream into the bowl of a stand mixer, or you can use a hand mixer.

Whisk until the cream stiffens and makes stiff peaks.

Add in powdered sugar slowly and make sure it is completely combined.
