The BEST Fresh Strawberry Cream Cheese Cake Recipe
We love celebrating with CAKE! When my kids graduated from high school or college, we always make my mom’s FRESH Strawberry Cream Cheese Cake. It’s so good! We also make it for other special occasions too, but it’s perfect for a special BBQ, shower or birthday!
The Best Summer Fruit Recipes
I am so thrilled to be joining friends today who are sharing their favorite summer fruit recipes!! How delicious do these look?? Scroll down to the bottom of the post and grab these yummy ideas to make NOW!
Why We Love This Strawberry Cream Cheese Cake
It’s so moist and yummy! The bottom layer is soft white cake, then it’s topped with a cream cheese/whipped cream topping and topped off with fresh strawberries in a sweet strawberry glaze. The layers of whipped cream frosting and strawberries keep the cake so moist and fresh. You can make it ahead and serve it the next day! We aren’t huge cake lovers, but this cake is so moist and bursting with flavor. I haven’t met anyone yet that doesn’t love it!
The Perfect Summertime Cake
Strawberries are in season right now so this is the perfect cake to make this time of year. There’s something magical about fresh, sun-ripened strawberries. I love that this cake uses FRESH strawberries that aren’t cooked so the ripe strawberry taste shines through!
The best part about this recipe for me is how EASY it is to make!
The base of the cake is a plain white cake mix. It’s perfect for ANY type of party or occasion. Fresh strawberries are the star of this cake. And the frosting is light and doesn’t overwhelm the fruit.
Make This Strawberry Cream Cheese Cake The Day Before
You also can make this cake a day ahead of your party or occasion. Just keep it refrigerated and take it out when you are heading to your party.
Choose the Size Pan You Want
You make your cake in a jelly roll pan OR in a 9×13 inch rectangular pan. The cake will rise to the height of the pan, then you add the frosting and then the layer of glazed strawberries. It’s a beautiful cake that will be the centerpiece of the party! You also can bake the cake in two small round pans, then add the strawberry filling to the center of the cake and on top for a layered cake version of this recipe! It would look so beautiful!!
