A personal favorite. We have so many!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Fresh strawberries, cream cheese, and wonderfully sweet yogurt?! What a delightful, delicious combo! This truly is a strawberry shortcake in cake form. Simple and no frills, the cake is nice and spongy. The cream cheese layer makes this simple cake decadent. A tasty twist on strawberry shortcake.

Note: We would recommend chilling this cake for about an hour before slicing. It isn't necessary, but the top layer will slide around if the cream cheese layer isn't firm. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
