No Bake Strawberry Cake
Sometimes you require quick desserts that are even faster to prepare than store-bought cake mix. That’s where this no bake strawberry cake recipe comes in because it takes only five minutes to prepare, then it’s just a matter of chilling it until you can eat it. Strawberry shortcake recipes are a classic summer treat, or even strawberry angel food cake recipes, but rather than going through the time of preparing flaky biscuits or egg white leavened cake, you can make this strawberry cake recipe instead. This easy cake recipe involves fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and pound cake, making this a dessert recipe full of familiar flavors, but so quick and easy to prepare. Whether you want a cake for any day of the week or an idea for kids birthday cakes, this no bake strawberry cake recipe will be a perfect choice.
By using a store-bought pound cake, this strawberry dessert becomes one of the easiest cakes you will ever make. Plus, it is sliced and assembled like a traditional layer cake recipe, so it will look like you spent much longer on it. Not all store-bought pound cakes are made equal, however, so be sure to read the label to ensure that only the most natural ingredients were involved in making the cake. You can even purchase a pound cake from a local bakery since they will be less likely to load up their cakes with artificial preservatives. Even consider baking your own loaf cake recipe if you have the time because the cake will be much fluffier and fresher than what you buy at the store. If you are concerned about using whipped topping, which may also be filled with unnatural ingredients, Aubrey, the author of this strawberry cake recipe, gives you a choice to use her whipped cream recipe instead. This process will tack on an additional five minutes to the cake making process, but will be so much healthier than using prepared whipped topping. She adds gelatin as a stabilizer for the cream, so you won’t have to worry about the cream dripping off your healthy cake recipes as it sits in the refrigerator.
Kids often want to help in the kitchen, but the high heat of ovens prevent them from doing so. If you want no bake recipes for kids, this easy cake recipe is the perfect one, because there is no baking or cooking required. The only place you may want to be watchful of is when it comes to chopping the strawberries and slicing the cake into layers, but otherwise, the kids can safely assemble the entire cake on their own. For the cleanest slices, always use a serrated knife when cutting cake layers, since it will be less likely to make the cake crumble. Investing in a long serrated knife is best because that way you will be able to prepare larger cakes and slice layers with one swipe of the knife Thank you to Aubrey, the author of ‘Real House Moms’ recipe blog for showing us how to prepare her no bake strawberry cake recipe.
