Yield: Makes one 9-inch 4-layer cake, about 5 inches high
The second most popular dessert at Junior’s in New York City is their Famous Fresh Strawberry Shortcake, which they’ve been serving 20 years longer than they have their cheesecake—it was on their menu when they opened in 1950. Here we’ve given it a delicious twist—making it with three kinds of berries instead of one.
This recipe is excerpted from Junior’s Dessert Cookbook.
TIP: Don’t freeze this cake. It will not look pretty or hold up when defrosted. The fruits will lose their shape, their colors will bleed, and the whipped cream frosting will lose its design.
