Moist vanilla cake is topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. Can be made vegan and includes a gluten free option.
I made this cake for my daughter’s birthday a few weeks ago. She loves strawberry shortcake, but not the biscuit version…more vanilla cake-like with strawberries and whipped cream. I made a half batch of this butter cake for the cake part, then topped it with dairy-free whipped topping and fresh strawberries.
When I posted it on social media, I had a lot of people ask me for the recipe. Although I shared the cake I used, I made a few changes and also did half the recipe, so I thought I’d go ahead and add it here on the blog to make it easier. I know it can be tricky trying to halve a recipe in your mind. There are several instances where I halved most of the ingredients, then forgot and put the full amount of a few ingredients only to make a mess of the whole recipe.
This cake is definitely worth a try! It’s fairly simple and would be delicious using any type of berry! Hope you enjoy it!Print
