Homemade Strawberry Cake Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Strawberry cake has become a dessert that everyone in our house loves. You may not realize just how easy it is to make from scratch.

This strawberry cake recipe is one that is perfect for your next get together, a special occasion, or just because. 

There will not be a single slice left.

Let me show you just how easy this is to make.

Gather up all of your ingredients.  We have them broken down by cake, puree and the frosting.

Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 box strawberry jello mix
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup strawberry puree (see recipe below)

 

Strawberry Puree:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water

 

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a small pot (we love this one) bring strawberries, sugar, and water to a boil for one minute.

Let cool completely.

In a large mixing bowl (we love this set) combine white cake mix, strawberry jello mix, sugar, and flour.

In a small bowl combine cooled strawberry puree, sour cream, and eggs.

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix on low until combined.

Beat on medium-high for 2 minutes. You could also use your standing mixer for this. I have had mine for a decade and it runs like it’s brand new. I have the Classic Plus

Pour batter into greased 9in round baking pans and back 35-40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Now it’s time to make the frosting.

While cakes are cooling, beat cream cheese in a large bowl for about 15 seconds.

Add in sugar, salt, and vanilla extract; beat until creamy.

Slowly pour in heavy whipping cream and beat on medium-high until stiff peaks are formed.

Place in refrigerator if cakes are still cooling or frost immediately.

Use think slices of strawberries to decorate the side of the cake like we did. It’s such an easy way to make it beautiful.

Decorate with extra sliced strawberries and serve.

 

Isn’t that so simple? It really is easy to make it from scratch and anyone can do it!
