Egg Free Strawberry Shortcake Cake

I'm raising the white flag here. I have lost count of the number of recipes and attempts I have made to get a good egg free WHITE cake. I can get yellow cake but white cake just seems to depend on too many eggs. So I'm throwing in the towel (for now) and settling with a boxed cake mix.

You've probably seen recipes like this before. All you need is two ingredients: a boxed cake mix and a can of soda.

You will cry this is so easy. It'll probably take you longer to read this post than it will to make this cake. 

I'm not really a fan of boxed cake mixes in general. I take pride in being able to make things from scratch.  But here, it totally works. This would work with any cake mix but I chose Betty Crocker White Cake mix and 1-1/2 cups of club soda. (a 12 oz can of lemon-line soda works too). You can bake it as a cake or a cupcakes. I chose to do a strawberry shortcake! (Yum!) 

Egg Free Strawberry Shortcake Cake
From Egg Free Bakery

For the cake:
1 box white cake mix
1-1/2 cups club soda or 12 oz can lemon lime soda 

For the cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

1 pint of strawberries

In a bowl combine cake mix and soda. Stir until no lumps remain. Grease and flour two 8 inch round cake pans. Divide cake batter equally between the two pans. Bake according to directions on cake mix box, checking a few minutes earlier for doneness. When done, remove from oven and let cool in pan a few minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cake is completely cooled and you're ready to assemble, in a bowl combine heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Whip on medium high speed until stiff peaks form. Wash, hull and slice the strawberries. 

Place one of the cakes on a plate. Top with half of the whipped cream and half of the berries. Gently place second cake on top of strawberry layer (you may need to dollop a few spoonfuls of cream on the strawberries to help the second cake stick) top with remaining cream and strawberries. May store in fridge for a few hours. It is best served soon after assembling. Enjoy!
