Strawberries and Cream
To me, there’s nothing that screams summer more than strawberries and cream! So it’s the perfect time of year to make a strawberries and cream cake!
I absolutely LOVE this cake. It’s got a beautiful strawberry flavor, topped with fresh whipped cream and fresh, sweet strawberries.
I dare you to only eat one piece. Seriously, I dare you.
Cake can be a difficult thing to get exactly right. So it’s so important to keep an eye on your oven when baking. Each oven is a little different, and baking times may vary. The amount of time between a cake that’s done and a cake that’s over baked and dry is pretty small, so it’s a good idea to stay close during the bake.
As for flavor, Chef Shamy Strawberry Honey Butter is here to impart an amazing strawberry flavor into the cake. Honestly, there’s something about a cake made with butter that’s so delicious.
But, my favorite thing about this dessert is the topping. A lot of strawberries and cream cakes will throw some frosting on top, but I reject that idea! It’s strawberries and cream, so we’ve gotta have cream!
To me, cakes are so refreshing with just whipped cream instead of frosting. And it’s up to you– put as much whipped cream on top as you want. Come on, there’s no such thing as too much!
Don’t forget to toss your strawberries in a little bit of sugar! Not only does it sweeten them, it creates a glaze that will sit on top of the cream. YUM!
