WHIPPED CREAM CAKE


This weeks Heavenly Cake is the Whipped Cream Cake from Rose's Heavenly Cakes. It was fast and easy to make with a light moist crumb. It has a vanilla flavor and needs no icing accept a dusting of powdered sugar. The fat in it is whipped cream that you whip before adding the eggs and vanilla. I used 40% fat Manufacturers Cream which Rose recommended. It also calls for cake flour which helps to make it even more tender. Many of the other heavenly cake bakers used beautiful bundt pans. I only had a generic one so I didn't even take a picture of the baked cake right out of the pan. I had just bought some berries so I cut them up, added a little sugar and vanilla and served them with the cake.

In the name of research I had a slice this morning with my coffee just to see if the cake dried out. It did not, so I guess I will have to try it again this evening to see how it is aging? This really is a wonderful cake to have any time of day. Hubby loved it too!!

Beautiful presentation! I too have lots of generic bundt pans and not the fancy ones (except the siilcone rose one i think)..i'm afraid that the fancy ones won't come out in 1 piece..but everyone's cake looks lovely so now i am tempted to buy..:p

Beautiful cake! Continuing to taste test cakes et al is the reason I am cutting back for a month or two.
However, I am still copying your recipe!

What an elegant presentation! Love the crumb. I'll try this cake again with the higher butterfat cream, even though I can hardly imagine how this cake would be even more awesome :o) I had a slice for breakfast with some tea this AM. Still good!! You call it "in the name of research", I call it "quality control". Works either way :o)
