Strawberry Lemonade Cake

Strawberry Lemonade Cake

Here is Bob’s birthday cake which was the perfect summery cake.  Just a warning that the flavored whipping cream is really tart so if you don’t like tart then I would suggest cutting down on the flavoring.  The recipe comes from “Lolly Jane”.

1 lemon cake mix

1 small box lemon pudding mix

4 eggs

3/4 cup oil

1 cup water

3 cups whipping cream

3/4 cup (or less if you want to cut down on the tart) Country Time Strawberry Lemonade drink mix

16 oz strawberries

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Grease two 8″ round cake pans.

2  Beat together cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil and water for 2 minutes.

3  Divide batter between cake pans.  Bake 30 – 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

4  Cool in pans 10 minutes then remove from pans and allow to cool another 10 minutes on cooling racks.

5  Wrap each cake layer in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

6  Beat together whipping cream and drink mix on high for about 3 – 5 minutes or until medium peaks form.

7  Hull and slice about half the strawberries, reserving a little less than half for garnish.

8  Place one cake layer on serving platter.  Place slice strawberries on top then top strawberries with half of the whipped cream.  Place 2nd cake layer on top of whipped cream and top this layer with remaining whipped cream.  Garnish with whole berries.

9  Store in fridge.

  1. I can’t wait to try this cake! I’ve made lemon cakes before, but I don’t know why I never thought of making it strawberry lemonade! What a perfect summer dessert! Penny, Is there any kind of specific oil you most recommend? Thank you for such a creative recipe!
