Strawberry Jam Cake

Rose Rauhauser


My mom used to make this for special occasions but I say, why wait, life's too short and strawberries are in season now. Enjoy

Blue Ribbon Recipe

I understand why Rose's mother made this strawberry cake recipe on special occasions. It's super moist, but firm enough to hold up 3 layers. The jam adds a punch of flavor next to the cake. The strawberry cream cheese frosting is rich and creamy. This cake will be great for any occasion and it's a strawberry lover's dream recipe!

Tip: When using jam in layers, if you put a ring of frosting around the edge of the cake with a piping bag it keeps the jam from bleeding out of the edges and mixing in the frosting. The Test Kitchen
