Not everyone is a master baker. I’ve baked before, and over the past year I’ve really started to enjoy it . . . but I like shortcuts. You know, ones that still lead to a delicious, attractive result!

This yellow cake with strawberries fits into that category. It’s not from scratch – it uses a cake mix – but the point of this recipe is to show you how you can make a pretty, yummy dessert and do it quickly.

And no one will know that you took a shortcut. It’s perfect for those of us that aren’t The Cake Boss.

To describe this yellow cake recipe, it’s more dense than a shortcake or angel food cake, which I love.

The “icing” is really cream and it almost reminds me of a strawberry shortcake – but it’s not too sweet. You’re going to love it!

Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 small box of cake mix, 9 oz. (I use Jiffy yellow cake mix)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 quart strawberries, washed, tops removed and sliced

Directions:

  1. Grease and flour an 8 or 9″ square cake pan. I suggest lining the bottom with parchment paper (grease and flour the paper) or the cake will most likely stick.
  2. Prepare and bake cake according to package directions. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Remove cake from pan, if desired.
  3. Using a mixer, beat cream and sugar until stiff peaks form, about 4-6 minutes. Spread on top of cake.
  4. Use a slicer to slice strawberries thin and place in any pattern you wish, onto your cake.
  5. Serves 9.

Tip: To adapt to a 9 x 13″ pan, just double the cream and sugar.
