It's summer! Hello, outdoor BBQs, twilight reaching into almost the wee hours of the morning, and all the strawberries you can handle.
Like tomatoes, corn, and freckles, strawberries reach their peak in summer. They are tart, sweet, ruby-hued jewels that tastes unmistakably of June, July, and August. Although they are absolutely perfect straight from the farmers market, sometimes you want something a little fancier — something to serve at parties, to savor after dinner, and, quite frankly, to dig into for a decadent midnight snack. Lucky for you, Pinterest has you covered.
Pinterest's most popular strawberry recipe is this strawberries and cream cheesecake from Life, Love and Sugar (it's been saved 120,000 times in 2017) and it's easy to see why. The final result looks like something out of Alice in Wonderland — even the Queen of Hearts would be impressed.
This recipe layers creamy cheesecake with fresh strawberry cake for a result that is incredibly delicious and beautiful, not to mention delicious. The strawberries are puréed into the cake mix for a particularly fresh taste that's enhanced by a beautiful rosy hue. This cake takes a while to make and assemble, but it's worth it for the stunning payoff.
