Strawberry Bundt Cake is the perfect light and fruity dessert for any gathering! It is easy to make and a total crowd pleaser.
I just can't get enough of the baking and the strawberries...and the baking with the strawberries. This Strawberry Layer Cake wasn't enough. I just had to create another strawberry-laden cake with a different spin. Strawberries are so yummy this time of year and when a dessert is saturated with the juicy little fruit, it becomes a quick star at birthday parties or weekend gatherings.
Sammy turned eight this week and he sometimes has issues with frosting. Buttercream frosting can be a bit much for him, so he much prefers a fruity glaze. We did a standard buttercream cake for his party, but I knew he'd love having an alternate buttercream-less option. He loves strawberries, so this cake was perfect. The cake itself is moist and flavorful. The glaze is to-die-for, with the freeze-dried strawberries totally saturating it with fruity flavor.
Quick recipe note: Refrigerate the cake until you're ready to serve and wait until just before serving to add the strawberry slices to the top.
The above photo was taken just before I let my boys devour the first piece of cake. The excitement you see is genuine and that slice was demolished in seconds.
Sometimes baking with fruit can get tricky since it can make the final product too moist, giving it a "wet" texture. This is not the case with this yummy cake. It turned out so perfectly that I may or may not have danced in my kitchen.
