Yes, I did. I decided to whip up some sugary goodness for the Super Bowl. As you can see Papa was so disappointed about the whole thing.
This cake is going to be one of our family favorites, that's for sure. Good old Paula pulled through again. I don't think I have ever tried a Paula Deen recipe I did not like!!!!!!!!!! That woman knows her way around a kitchen.
I have been wanting to make this cake since Christmas time but, there were no fresh strawberries around here. Well, there were but they cost a billion dollars so I decided to wait. Lo and Behold when I went to Costco the other day.... ta da..... strawberries.
Mmmmm I could have eaten the whole bowl of frosting myself.
Here we go:
1 cup butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
5 egg whites
2 teas. strawberry extract
2 cups pureed fresh strawberries
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sour cream
3 cups cake flour
1 TBS. baking powder
1 teas. baking soda
1/4 teas. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 (9 inch) cake pans.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add egg whites, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in strawberry extract, pureed strawberries, and sour cream.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until combined.Pour batter evenly into prepared pans and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely on wire rack. Spread Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake. Garnish with fresh strawberries, if desired.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup pureed fresh strawberries
1/2 teas. strawberry extract
6 1/2 ( I used 7 1/2 cups) cups powdered sugar
When using 7 1/2 cups powdered just add a little milk to make it creamy.
