Strawberry & Cream CakePosted: February 25, 2011
Here it is! There it goes!! This cake did not stay around long! These are favorite flavors of my favorite people. I made this cake for my son and his daughter. And I had a couple slices myself. Pretty good!
I used Warren Brown’s Yellow Butter Cake recipe and whipped two, 8oz containers of organic cream. The cream really surprised me. I never whipped fresh cream before and didn’t believe that with a little spinning of my mixer that it would turn into something so wonderful!
I need to perfect my strawberry filling. It was suggested that I cook the strawberries when I just added sugar and water and mashed the mixture. The flavor was great but the texture needed work. I better look into this.
I also have to continue my search for a simple but flavorful yellow cake recipe since giving Mr. Brown’s recipe a second try didn’t make the cake any less dry. Although he suggests potato starch for most of his cake recipes, which I think is the ingredient causing the dryness, I do intend to try two more of his cake recipes: the Lemon Ginger, and Vanilla Pound cakes. Those are coming soon.
