Sooooo Good (Though Not Really Good For You)

This cake is so good. It is dense, like a pound cake. Eat it. Savor it. Enjoy it. Don't look at the calories. Don't weight yourself the next day. Have no regrets! (Just don't make this too often!)

Strawberries and Cream Butter Cake


1 roll Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 1/4 LAND O LAKES unsalted or salted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
3 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup strawberry preserves
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 lb fresh strawberries, sliced (2 1/2 cups)


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Let cookie dough stand at room temperature 10 minutes to soften. Spray 13x9-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Beak up cookie dough in pan; press to cover bottom of pan.

In large bowl, beat butter and granulated sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons of the vanilla until well blended. On low speed, alternately beat in about 1/3 of the flour and 1/2 of the condensed milk, ending with flour addition, until blended. Pour batter over dough in pan, spreading gently to cover.

Drop teaspoonfuls preserves onto batter; with knife, swirl preserves into batter.

Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until edges are golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool until slightly warm, about 1 hour.

In small bowl, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar, and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.

Serve warm cake with whipped cream and strawberries. Store covered.

Makes 16 servings.

  1. We didn't heat it up because we were serving too many, but 10 - 15 seconds in the microwave made it even better....if you thought that was possible. This is so good. I'm glad at long last that we got to try it.
