National Strawberry Day

National Strawberry Day-

Its National Strawberry Day! One of my favorite garden treats has its very own special day. Who knew? Our garden is abundant with beautiful berries. I have always loved strawberries. I eat fresh strawberries nearly every day, all year round. But the best ones come from our garden. Look at these beauties. Red plump sweet and delicious. If I could give you a bowl full I surely would. Instead I hope you will enjoy one or all of these wonderful strawberry filled recipes.

1 cup butter, softened
1-3/4 cups sugar
5 egg whites
2 cups pureed strawberries
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon strawberry extract
3 cups cake flour
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
3-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup pureed strawberries
1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract
1 cup seedless strawberry jam, divided
Sliced fresh strawberries, optional

Grease and flour three 9-in. round baking pans; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add
egg whites, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in
the strawberries, sour cream and extract. Combine the flour, baking
powder, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture. Transfer
batter to prepared pans.
Bake at 350° for 22-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near
the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from
pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until
fluffy. Add the confectioners’ sugar, strawberries and extract; beat
until smooth.
Place bottom cake layer on a serving plate; top with 1/2 cup jam and
1/2 cup frosting. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake layer.
Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Garnish with
sliced strawberries if desired.

Yield: 12 servings.
