Mini Vanilla Cakes With Strawberries & Cream

Mini Vanilla Cakes With Strawberries & Cream

Ever just want a little bit of cake and not a full layered one? No? Just me? Well, these mini cakes are fun to pull together easily. They have a great strawberry shortcake flavor and the whipped cream add some sweetness to the cakes.

You could try this with other berries, like blackberries or raspberries, to make a compote instead of the strawberries if you want to try something new! Enjoy!



Vanilla Cake

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract


  • 1 cup strawberries quartered and sliced
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream cold
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


For the strawberries

  • Mix the strawberries and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Let sit in the fridge.

For the cake

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour the inside of a 13 in x 9 in pan. Set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and mix together.
  • Mix the milk and vanilla together. Start adding in the flour mixture and alternate with the milk into the butter and eggs. Mix well in between each addition.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes clean. Let cool in pan for 5-10 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack. Once cool, slice into squares or use a large circle cookie cutter to make rounds.

For the whipped cream

  • Place cold whipped cream, vanilla, and sugar in a bowl. Using a stand or hand mixer, whip until stiff peaks.

To assemble

  • Place a slice of cake on a plate, add the sliced strawberries and whipped cream. If you’d like, add another slice of cake and top with more strawberries and whipped cream.
