Strawberry Jello Cake recipe is the yummiest combo of all-time favorite spring and summer desserts: strawberry shortcake, strawberry jello and no-bake cheesecake. After one bite, you’ll be totally hooked. Strawberry jello loaded with the fresh strawberries make a world of difference!!! It’s still not too late for this simple and easy Strawberry Jello Cake to make an appearance at your Easter table.
Strawberry Jello Cake is very light, fluffy, not too sweet and it’s so easy to assemble.
It may sounds so bold, but this Strawberry Jello Cake is one of the prettiest cake I’ve ever made. And it’s equally delicious what makes it even more irresistible. It starts with vanilla sponge cake as a base. Then it’s followed with light as a cloud no-bake cheesecake filling and thick layer of strawberry jello loaded with sweet, fresh strawberries.
Although strawberries are not yet in a full season, a few days ago I saw this wonderful, juicy fresh strawberries on the market so I had to have them. And after all those carrot recipes, Carrot Cake Cupcakes and Carrot Cake Cheesecake, I was craving for some refreshing, fruit dessert to continue my spring recipe collection. And so I came up with gems like this Strawberry Jello Cake. I know, I know… I’m talking about spring and there is rain-every single day. These cake really cheered me up last week during 5 day of rain. It really brought some sunshine inside.
When I’ve got those beautiful strawberries, I couldn’t decide what kind of dessert to make. For hours I’ll go back and forth: Strawberry shortcake? Strawberry cheesecake? Strawberry pretzel salad? Which one should I make?? Then I just decided to do all three of them, just packed in one amazing treat.
I’ve already had on my blog recipe for Strawberry Shortcake only in a cupcake form. I also had No bake Strawberry Cheesecake, but none for Strawberry Pretzel Salad. And then I thought, Strawberry Pretzel Salad is showing up at every party, spring or summer family gathering or potlucks and the original recipe that I got includes frozen strawberries and it will be total waste for these fresh, juicy strawberries. So I decided to take a little of each recipe and put them together into one perfect cake- Strawberry Jello Cake.
It’s called a cake but it’s really so easy to put all together. Vanilla sponge cake is my go-to vanilla batter recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction, that I like to use every time I need really moist, fluffy and flavorful cake base. Cheesecake filling is a simple mixture of cream cheese, vanilla and fresh homemade whipped cream (not Cool whip or other ready to use stuff) . And I added some gelatin, just to hold all that together and to make sure it will cut nice and easy.
And my favorite part about this cake is strawberry jello layer. Fresh strawberries inside the jello look so pretty and gives delicious refreshing taste, perfect for spring or summer dessert.
