How to Make Vanilla Cake With Strawberry Cream

Step-by-Step

  1. For the frosting beat cream cheese and butter in a large bowl until smooth. You will want to use a electric mixer so you don't end up with lumps. Stop every now and then to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  2. Beat in sugar then jam. Beat cream in a separate chilled bowl until peaks form. Fold whipped cream into frosting. Cover and chill for a couple of hours until its firm enough to spread.
  3. For the cake preheat oven to 325. Butter and flour 2-9 inch cake pans with 2 inch high sides. In a medium bowl whist together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time beating after each addition.
  5. Beat in vanilla. Add sour cream and beat for 30 seconds. Add flour mixture in 3 additions beating to blend after each addition. Divide batter into prepared pans.
  6. Bake cake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Run a sharp knife around the edges of the pans then turn cakes out onto a rack to cool completely. You may want to refrigerate them for a couple of hours to make the next step easier.
  8. Using a serrated knife divide each layer in half horizontally. Place each half cake side down on a cake plate. Spread 2 tablespoons strawberry jam over the cake then spread 3/4 cup of the frosting over the jam.
  9. Arrange 3/4 of the sliced strawberries on top of the frosting in a single layer. Repeat 2 more times with cake layer, jam, frosting and strawberries. Top with remaining cake layer cut side down.
  10. Spread 2 cups of frosting over the top and sides of the cake in a thin layer then frost with remaining frosting.
  11. Stir remaining jam to loosen then spoon teaspoonfuls onto the top and sides of the cake. Use the back of a spoon to swirl jam decoratively into the frosting.
