    Petdrwife's Note:

    This is a wonderful cake that I was only introduced to five years ago when moving to the Great Lakes region of our beautiful country. My husband requested it for his birthday and instead of just ordering it from the local grocer I decided to try my hand and making it, after all I knew the ingredients....so here it is!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cake

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 yellow cake (half sheet) or 1 white cake (half sheet)

    Filling 1

    • 16 ounces strawberries (fresh or frozen, sliced)
    • 13 1/2 ounces strawberry glaze

    Filling 2

    Icing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make custard filling by placing granulated sugar, flour and salt in medium sauce pan. Add milk and cook over medium heat till thick and bubbly (be careful not to scortch).
    2. 2
      Temper egg yolks by adding some of the hot mixture to the beaten egg yolks and then returning the egg yolk mixture to the hot mixture whisking till blended. Cook mixture another five minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat, add vanilla and refrigerate mixture till completely cool.
    4. 4
      Stir together the sliced strawberries and strawberry glaze, keep refrigerated till ready to use.
    5. 5
      Cut the half sheet cake in half to make two-quarter sheet cake layers approximately 1" thick. Best to freeze these cake layers before working with the filling and frosting to prevent them from breaking apart.
    6. 6
      Place bottom layer of cake on platter or cake tray.
    7. 7
      Stir the cooled custard and spread on the bottom layer of cake making sure to leave about half inch from outside all the away around (when layers are put together the filling will spread out to the ends and if filling is spread all the way to outside it will ooze out).
    8. 8
      Spread the strawberry glaze filling on top of the custard filling.
    9. 9
      Place the other cake layer on top of the fillings. Keep refrigerated till ready to ice the cake.
    10. 10
      For icing, beat the whip cream until frothy.
    11. 11
      Add the powder sugar and vanilla gradually and beat until frosting consistency.
    12. 12
      Ice the cake to your liking and keep cake refrigerated.

      Great recipe, however, the fillings made enough for 3 cakes (I used 2 9'' rounds).. The strawberry glaze was a bit overpowering, so the second time around I added more strawberries and I cut the top layer of cake in two, so that I had two layers of filling.. it made for a much more decadent treat! In two days, family and friends devoured two cakes!! Although I don't know if it is spelled cassada, casada, or cassata.. searching for a recipe paid off.. Thanks for the help!!

      Thank you Petdrwife for sharing this wonderful recipe...My family & I enjoyed this cake very much. It makes a lovely tall, moist cake, the filling is incredible, and who doesn't love whipped cream. It was even better the next day...this goes into the family keeper box.
