All-American Strawberry Layer Cake is the perfect dessert to serve to your "berry" best company. It's a light, fruity cream cake that's long on goodness and short on work.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 3 pints fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Bake cake batter according to package directions for two 9-inch round layers; let cool. Slice each cake layer in half horizontally, making 4 layers, and place 1 layer on a serving platter. Slice 2 pints of strawberries and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on high speed, beat the cream, sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spread one-fourth of the whipped cream mixture over top of first cake layer. Top with one-third of the sliced strawberries. Repeat with remaining layers, topping final layer with remaining pint of whole strawberries, hulled-side down.
  3. Cover loosely and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.


You can bake the cake layers ahead of time and freeze them until needed. Just make sure to wrap each layer well.

Laura I remember so well of the strawbeery shortcake my sister made when I was just a kid but it was made with pie crust rather then cake OOOOH

I'll be making this for my husband for Valentine's Day.

I made this for a work birthday, and it was a hit. Everyone said it was light, which was good as it was an over a 100 degree day that day.

I made this for our friends for desert after dinner and it was the VERY BEST STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE I've evr had.....SOOO easy to make and well worth it.....

It is very difficult to add recipes to my recipe collection. Even though I am logged in to access my recipe collection, every time I select a different recipe I have to log in again. What's up with this.
