This cake is light and fluffy and full of strawberry! Lot's of strawberry cakes call for jello packets and usually are really dense. Which is good sometimes. My sister has a strawberry cake recipe that is super dense and super delicious. We had her make it for our wedding cake and I've made it several times since then. But sometimes you don't want something heavy. Especially in the summer when it's over 100 degrees and the A/C is struggling and you're sweating because you've got the oven going on an already stupidly hot day. So I wanted to make a cake that was light and fluffy and still every bit of strawberry. No compromising on flavor. Let's make Strawberry Cake together...
This is a sad post because it's the last part in our Happily The Martinez Peaches Four Ways series. Be sure to check out her posts on how to use these tasty summer peaches we've got.
Today, we're talking Popsicles. Which are rather underrated. Well, at least I underrated them. They're so stupidly fun to make cause there's almost nothing to it. Especially when we're thinking about fruit. There are endless options for mixing and matching or just keeping it simple. When I think Popsicle I think creamy and fruity. So that's what we're after. A blend of creamy peaches and strawberries. But layering them makes them all the more fun! I know it's a bit different than my typical rich and decadent desserts, but when it's hot and you're poolside, you don't want rich and decadent; you want light, fresh, flavorful and cold. So let's make popsicles together...
Summer peaches are where it's at. They're so juicy and sweet. Since Happily The Hicks and I both think so, we decided to collaborate again to bring you 4 ways to use your summer peaches! Check out her Peach Swirl Homemade Ice cream! Check both of our blogs again next week for two more recipes using these tasty peaches that scream summer. You know what else screams summer? Lemonade. And now we're here: peach lemonade. Two of the tastiest things summer has to offer (besides strawberries, but we'll get to that next week) This lemonade is super easy to make and so refreshing. It's sweet from the peaches and little bit of sugar and so perfectly tart from the freshly squeezed lemons. Plus it's easy to turn into a cocktail! Shall we? Let's make Peach Lemonade together...
