I created this dessert one Saturday when my daughter's friends dropped in. It was a hit, and word spread through the high school. It has been renamed "Amber's Dad's Good Stuff." —Frankie Allen Mann Warrior, Alabama

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 4 egg whites
  • FILLING:
  • 2-1/4 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Whole strawberries for garnish

Directions

  1. Line two greased 9-in. round baking pans with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar. Add egg yolks, vanilla and orange peel; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk and orange juice.
  2. In another bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form. Fold into batter.

  4. In a bowl, combine the chopped strawberries and sugar; let stand for 30 minutes. In a bowl, beat cream and vanilla until cream begins to thicken. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar on high until stiff peaks form. Fold in sour cream.
  5. PLace one cake layer on a serving plate; top with chopped berries and half of the cream mixture. Top with the remaining cake and cream mixture. Garnish with whole berries. Yield: 10-12 servings.

Beautiful dessert, however cake was a bit "heavy". If I were to make again I would double the filling and strawberries and divide the two layer into four layers. Cake is just too thick as recipe reads.
