Cake Mix Nurse – 3 Layer White Cake with Fresh Strawberries

Martha from  A Sense of Humor is Essential will be filling in today for Liz.  Springtime is right around the corner and that means California Strawberry Season will soon be here. This 3 layer white cake with strawberries is a special treat for someone you love, including yourself.

3 Layer White Cake with Fresh Strawberries
1 box of vanilla or white cake mix batter prepared
2-4 tablespoons strawberry jam
At least 1 cup of fresh strawberries
4 cups of whipped cream frosting

  • Prepare white or vanilla boxed cake mix batter according to directions.*
  • Divide the prepared batter into three greased and floured 8″ or 9″ pans and bake for approximately One Third Less Time than a Double layer cake. So, for instance, if two 9″ layers require 27-30 minutes of baking at 350 degrees, bake three layers for approximately 18-20 minutes. (And who says you never use Algebra after school?) 
  • Cool cakes completely.
  • Wash, hull, and thoroughly dry strawberries, and slice 2/3 cup of berries into 1/4″ slices. 
  • Slice the remaining berries into halves for the top of the cake.
  • Spread a thin layer of strawberry jam on one layer.
  • Place approximately 1/3 cup of sliced berries on top of jam layer and then cover with whipped cream frosting. 
  • Repeat jam, berries, and frosting in between top and second layers.
  • Frost sides and top of cake and decorate with strawberry halves.
  • Keep chilled until serving.

I hope you enjoy this little slice of sweetness, thank you, Martha@A Sense of Humor is Essential

*A cake mix is not as good as scratch, but it’s still cost effective, time saving, and zillion times better than store bought cakes. Those food scientists at Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines know what they are doing, plus, home bakers add the special ingredient of love.

Doing a little krazy kitchen comment catch up today – try saying that 10 times fast!

Love your pretty cake. This is the type that generally gets made at my house too. I’m not much of a dessert maker or baker.

Thanks for the fill in post again this week 🙂
