If you want a great strawberry cake recipe from scratch that doesn't use jello, then your in the right place! This is a great moist cake with real strawberries. I tried a couple of different recipes that I wasn't thrilled with, so I played around a bit and found that the changes I made worked out quite well. I wanted this recipe to make cake balls and it worked very well since the cake wasn't too sweet. I mixed them with homemade strawberry cream cheese frosting!
My mother made this all the time when we were growing up. It is very sweet so a little goes a long way. Not a pretty cake but oh so good and easy to prepare. I have frozen this in precut squares and popped in the microwave for a sweet warm treat.
I found this recipe during the Christmas 2009 season in a local newspaper. I haven't tried it myself yet but it looks delicious. The recipe says it is a great glaze for rum cake but I bet it would be fabulous over vanilla pound cake too.
I got this recipe out of a Taste of Home book last summer and I love this recipe. I made it for a BBQ and my daughter requested it as a birthday cake. I've also used strawberries and blueberries for 4th of July celebration. The recipe recommends slicing the cake with a serrated knife. To split the cake into three layers I use dental floss - Makes a nice clean cut.
I got this recipe from a lady I work with. We were having a Mexican potluck at work. When she told us she was bring Mexican cheesecake, we all kinda looked at her funny. After we got done eating the cheesecake, we asked for for the directions on how to make it. I took it home and made it that night for a family get together we have every weekend. It was very easy to make. It sat in my house overnight before I took it out to my grandma's house. Not sure how I kept my boyfriend out of it. It smelled so good. It went so fast. My mom and grandma told me from now on this is what I'm to bring every weekend. I hope y'all enjoy the recipe.
Nobody else in my family loves coconut as much as me. Coconut anything... This cake is so delicious and moist and I can't stay away from it. The cream cheese icing recipe I use to frost it is the same as some posted here.
Paula Deen is my favorite chef - EVER! If I had to choose another mother, she'd be who I'd pick. This is her son Jamie's favorite birthday cake. I'm posting it here because not only do I want to try it, but I never want to lose it. And if you could see my office, you'd know that if I wrote it down, it would not be found until the day I stopped looking for it. So, here it is, safe and sound for everyone to enjoy.
