Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Great summer treat!

I came across this recipe on Barefoot and Baking and decided to give it a try last night. It was so simple and very good; a perfect summer treat.

The recipe is definitely a keeper. It also seems like it would lend itself well to experimenting with other fruit and yogurt flavors.

Give it a try.

Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Cake:
1 box yellow cake mix (plus egg, oil, water –per recipe on back of box)
6 ounces strawberry yogurt

Whipped Topping:
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup powdered sugar
6 ounces strawberry yogurt

Preheat oven to recommended temperature on back of cake box.

Mix cake as directed on the back of the box. Mix in 6 ounces of strawberry yogurt. Bake as directed on box.

Cool cake completely.

Whip whipping cream with sugar and vanilla until stiff. Add the other 6 ounces of strawberry yogurt to whipped cream.

Spread on cooled cake. (It is really important that the cake is completely cool or it will melt your whipped cream.)

Top with fresh sliced strawberries and serve.

    Um, is this considered fruit in your baked goods? I am very confused.

      I know, right?! Ummm…I have decided that in some ways, YES, it is considered fruit in my baked good. Which means, I am taking steps outside of my comfort zone. In other ways it is so NOT fruit in my baked good because there are no mushy apples or squished up strawberry chunks baked into the cake. You know, it’s the texture I can’t handle…not so much the flavor. But thank you for your concern. And thank you for pointing out the inconsistency in my life. Ummmm….GOTTA GO! Fed Ex truck outside my house! πŸ™‚
