Strawberry Cake with Whipped Cream

This cake is made with a store-bought mix (we like Dr. Oetker Organics Vanilla Cake Mix, $3, available at Whole Foods).

  • servings: 10

Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla cake mix
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped strawberries, plus whole strawberries for garnishing
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Prepare cake mix as directed. Fold chopped strawberries into batter, then pour batter into two 9-inch-round cake pans. Bake as directed. Let cakes cool as directed. Let cakes cool on a wire rack. Transfer one cake layer to a serving plate.

  2. Step 2

    In a medium bowl, whisk heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue whisking until stiff peaks form. Spread half of the whipped cream on one cake layer. Top cake with remaining layer, spread on remaining whipped cream, and decorate with whole strawberries.

    Steps are missing. I am going to assume you beat the heavy cream and sugar then spread in between cake layers and on top of cake . Garnish with strawberries. This makes a delicious quick and easy recipe!

    Why can't I see the whole recipe? I see step one and then it is finished.
