Strawberry Crunch Cake

Healthy Recipes - All you need to make this Strawberry Crunch Cake is a few ingredients and a food processor. I made a tangy strawberry frosting to spread between alternating layers of strawberry and vanilla cake (much love to homemade but I went with cake mixes this go around — this cake had enough elements to it without adding all THAT to the equation) and a creamy cream cheese frosting for the outer layer.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 (8 inch round) French vanilla cake layers, baked and cooled
  • 2 (8 inch round) strawberry cake layers, baked and cooled
  • Strawberry Crunch:
  • 12 Golden Oreo cookies
  • 12 shortbread cookies (I used Lorna Doone)
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • Strawberry frosting:
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and pureed (alternatively, you could use fresh)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • Cream cheese frosting:
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar


  1. Prepare the strawberry crunch: In the bowl of your food processor, pulse Golden Oreos and shortbread cookies until they are in coarse crumbs. Add melted butter and pulse until combined. Addf freeze-dried strawberries and pulse until combined.
  2. Prepare strawberry frosting: In the bowl of your mixer, beat butter on medium speed until smooth. Add heavy cream and strawberry puree, mixing on medium-low and scraping the sides of the bowl as needed until combined. With the mixer on low, slowly add powdered sugar until combined. Increase mixer speed to high and beat for one minute.
