I made this with strawberries we picked and a friend said it was the best cake he ever had! I made it for my birthday--yes, I sometimes like to bake my own birthday cake!

How to Make Fresh Strawberry Cream Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    Grease two 9" cake pans and lightly dust with flour, tap off excess. (I like to use parchment paper or wax paper on the bottom.)
  2. Sift flour, sugar baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. Beat cream in a medium-size bowl until stiff.
  4. Beat eggs in large bowl until very thick and light. Beat in vanilla; fold in reserved whipped cream.
  5. Sift dry ingredients over cream mixture; gently fold in until batter is smooth; pour in prepared pans.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until centers spring back when lightly pressed with fingertip.
    Cool on wire racks 10 minutes; loosen around edges with a knife; turn out onto wire racks; cool completely.
  7. For frosting:
    Hull and wash strawberries, chop and drain excess moisture. Cream butter and confectioner's sugar, add strawberries.
