Strawberry Limeade Cake

I love the taste of strawberries! Nothing tastes better than having a little strawberry in you life, it screams Spring! Every Sunday, we have dinner with our older kids and you have to have dessert! This is a perfect time for me to try out a new recipe, and get an honest reaction, plus then I don’t have a lot of leftovers for me to eat. This little diddy is a perfect combination of sweet and sour. Seriously, you can’t stop eating it!

Ingredients:
 1 cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 large eggs, separated
3 cups cake flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 salt
1 cup milk
juice of 1 lime 
Frosting:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 cup pureed strawberries
 
Directions:
 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour cake pans.
  • In a large bowl, Cream butter and then add the sugar until it is light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating until well blended.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine flour and butter mixture and then stir in the lime juice.
  • Beat the egg whites in a large bowl at a high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in the egg whites into the batter. Gently spoon the batter into prepared pans.
