To make the filling:
(Prepare before or while baking the cake)

Using a hand or stand mixture, mix the cream cheese, whipped topping, and powdered sugar. Once blended store in an airtight container and refrigerate.

If you enjoy filling on top of your cake as well once sliced, I recommend doubling the ingredients for this recipe. 

Rinse the strawberries, cut off the stems, and cut them into slices. In a bowl combine the granulated sugar and strawberries.

Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. The strawberries will create a light syrup during this process.

Steps to make the cake:

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour the bundt pan or use Baker’s Joy Cooking spray or similar. 

In a large bowl, cream butter and granulated sugar together. Add the vanilla and almond extracts.

Then, add the eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.

Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, alternating with sour cream. Once the ingredients are well blended pour evenly into greased bundt pan. Bake for 75 minutes or until the cake is golden brown.

Insert a wooden toothpick into the center of the cake. The cake is done when the toothpick comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes before inverting it onto a wire rack to complete the cooling process.

Steps to build the shortcake: 

Cut the cake in half horizontally. Place the top portion to the side. Spread a generous amount of the filling on the cake layer.

Next, add the strawberries around the inside edge of the cake and place the desired amount of strawberries onto the remainder of the cake layer.

Then add another generous layer of filling on top of the strawberries. Place the top layer on the cake and decorate as desired.

I decorated the cake by simply adding more filling into the opening of the cake and then adding whole strawberries. Keep the remaining sliced strawberries and filling for adding on top of your cake slices.

I recommend chilling the cake for approximately 30 minutes prior to serving for easier slicing.

  2. I never thought to use cream cheese with whipped cream. Sounds like it makes it very rich and tasty.

      Thank you! It also lightens up the cream cheese so that the topping has more of a creamy texture.
