First of all, I must apologize for this picture, as it was taken on a super humid day...were the frosting was melting off of the cake. It's not nearly as runny in real life, under more ideal circumstances. It's yummy though. MMM.
2 ¼ cup flour
1 ½ cup sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ cup unsalted butter (at room temp.)
2 tsp. vanilla
4 egg whites (at room temp.)
Mix all dry ingredients. Stir in, butter, milk and vanilla. Mix for 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. After eggs are added, mix another 2 minutes. Pour into two greased circular pans to make a tier cake. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
Yield: two layers for a cake
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temp)
½ cup pureed fresh strawberries
1 tsp. vanilla
5ish cups powdered sugar(may need more depending on humidity)
Cream all ingredients together and whip until smooth and spread over cake. You can add sliced strawberries in between the layers or on top. If you're like us and don't like frosting too sweet, replace one cup of the powdered sugar with flour.
yield: enough for 2 layer cake
