Strawberry shortcake cake is a cool and refreshing dessert made with fresh strawberries and topped with whipped cream. This easy homemade cake is perfect for warm weather get-togethers or summer holiday parties.
This strawberry shortcake cake is a delicious spin on the classic individual-sized shortcakes usually made during the summer months with sweet strawberries.
Our version of this favorite dessert is simple and incredibly easy to make. Made as a one-layer cake with juicy ripe strawberries, bright lemon flavor, and homemade whipped topping — it’s a dessert perfect for any occasion!
It’s best served the same day it’s assembled. The whipped topping can be spread all over the cake or dolloped individually over each slice.
It’s possible that your cake will become mushy if there’s too much moisture in the cake. Strawberries contain a lot of water which is released when they’re baked.
