If you love strawberries, then this Strawberry Sheet Cake is for you! This beauty is jam-packed with strawberries in both the cake and the frosting. The whole package is an easy-to-make dessert that’s sure to become a favorite for berry season.
I just love strawberry desserts, and I also love the simplicity of one-layer cakes. This cake has both of those things going for it. Plus, it’s just as delicious as it is gorgeous!
The original recipe for this cake comes from Bake from Scratch. I make just a few changes from the original with the biggest being with the amount of sugar in the frosting. With all those sweet strawberries in there, I dialed back the sugar for a little less sweet frosting. If you’d prefer your frosting a little sweeter, you can add up to another 3/4 cup of sugar to suit your tastes.
If you’ve got some baking experience under your apron belt, then you may recognize this method of mixing as the muffin method. This method of mixing is often used when there’s less sugar in a recipe. With all the strawberries in the batter, you can make this cake with less sugar than a more traditional cake. Mixing the batter this way will mix everything well while still giving a soft crumb.
This is such a pretty cake with its strawberry-filled frosting. It’s sure to be an eye-catcher! You can top it with even more fresh strawberries, but I usually keep it simple with no extra garnish. The frosting is so pretty that I hate to cover it!
Keep this cake in mind for your spring and summer celebrations. From Mother’s Day and Memorial Day all the way until Labor Day, do yourself a favor and make this Strawberry Sheet Cake every chance you get!
