This Strawberry Cloud Cake is easiest cake in the world to make! Honestly!
And it couldn't be prettier either - with a light fluffy pink cloud perched atop a chocolate biscuit base. Impressive enough to serve at a dinner party and deceptive enough that your guests will think you've gone to a lot of effort. While your guests ooh and ahh over your skills only you will know that this cake is so simple to make that the most difficult part was lining the cake tin!
With no baking involved, and only two simple steps this is a cake you will make again and again, if not only because of it's simplicity but also the fact it's the perfect way to celebrate strawberry season. However this Strawberry Cloud Cake would be flexible enough to be made with raspberries, blackberries and even blueberries.
Oh, and it's delicious too! But I'm sure you could tell that from just looking at it. 😀
Strawberry Cloud Cake
- 150 g of sweet biscuits
- 3 tsp of cocoa
- 100 g of butter melted
- STRAWBERRY CLOUD TOPPING
- 2 egg whites at room temperature
- 250 g of sugar
- 250 g of ripe strawberries hulled and chopped
- 1 tbsp of lemon juice
- 1 vanilla bean seeds scraped
- Line the base and sides of a 28cm spring form cake tin with baking paper.
- To make the base place the biscuits in a food processor and process until the biscuits form crumbs. Place in a bowl and mix with the cocoa. Add the melted butter and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the base of the prepared cake tin and press down to cover the bottom of the tin. Refrigerate while you make the filling.
- Place egg whites, sugar, strawberries, lemon juice and vanilla seeds in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on high speed for about 6–8 minutes or until the mixture is very thick and fluffy and the sugar has dissolved. To test if the sugar has dissolved stop the mixer and rub a small amount between your fingers. If it is at all gritty the sugar hasn't dissolved so you will need to keep mixing, otherwise it's ready. Spoon the filling over the chilled base, smooth the top, cover with a sheet of baking paper and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Remove from the freezer and cut into wedges to serve. Serve with fresh strawberries or strawberry coulis.

This looks soo pretty and sounds so easy to make ! It would be a perfect strawberry mousse too 😀
Omg my comment got lost for some reason! Anyway, hope you don't mind me asking what strawberry cloud topping is. I don't think I've seen that before at Coles or Woolies! Thanks for clearing it up cuz I'd really like to try this recipe sometime =)
Love this easy dessert cake with its mousse like topping... great for entertaining! 🙂

This is fab! I love how light and airy it sounds, coming from the freezer it sounds like a fabulous summer dessert.
Love the sound of a cloud cake - it'll be perfect for summer when the last thing ever you feel like doing is getting the oven on!

A bit cold here for a frozen dessert at the moment. But it will be perfect in a couple of months

How gorgeous and delicious! Great to hear it's your strawberry season now. We're almost ending here but I want to see more strawberry recipes! I didn't know this type of cake is called "Cloud" cake. I'm learning about baking slowly... 🙂 Love to have a piece with delicious earl grey...
Looks really delicious and so pretty too. I would have never guess you didn't bake it 🙂
Such a beautiful cake!

This looks so summery and light. I've never heard of a cloud cake, but I can just imagine how it tastes!

Looks beautiful Jennifer! Strawberry desserts always remind me of spring and summer - can't wait for the weather to warm up to go with it now!
What a gorgeously simple dessert. I'd love to try this with blueberries and a more chocolaty biscuit base (as well as in its original form, which looks fab!).
Delightful and refreshing! That is one wonderful dessert.
Laura (Tutti Dolci) says
What a lovely cake, it really does look like a delicious strawberry cloud! 🙂
Perfect for a sunny day like today!

Any dessert with the word cloud in it just has to be close to heaven, right? This looks light and delicious!
Kyrstie @ A Fresh Legacy says
What a great recipe Jennifer! It sounds and looks gorgeous.
Claire @ Claire K Creations says
Oh yum this looks fabulous! I'll most definitely be stashing it away for summer.
Suzanne Perazzini says
Anything this simple is worth taking note of. I can imagine it would taste just like a strawberry cloud with all that whipped egg white. It's like an uncooked pavlova.
What a delicious & pretty cake!
Ooh, lovely! As it's so light and airy, does that mean it doesn't have many calories? Please?
Haha well, it's low fat as it's mainly egg whites. Does that help? 😀
