Hands down Strawberry desserts are my favorite. So naturally, I had a strawberry cake for my birthday. I know we’re talking about something that was weeks ago, but every day there seems to be something new to worry about and before I realized, here we are getting ready for Mother’s Day.
Getting back on topic though, this was one of the most delicious cakes I’ve made (yes, yes I made my own cake). Regardless, the cake was light and moist. I was aiming for kind-of-an-angel food cake, but there was no way I was going to use a dozen egg whites and get stuck with all those yolks. On the flip side, I didn’t want to go through two sticks of butter either. Baking can get really tricky sometimes…
I formulated a vanilla cake base from several recipes I found and made some necessary adjustments, so I could have my cake and eat it too. As for the frosting, my secret was Greek yogurt with strawberry fruit at the bottom.
