There is plenty of sweetness thanks to the use of sugar and honey in the cake and strawberry jam. With this recipe, you make everything from the cake to the jam and whipped cream!

If you’ve not made your jam before, we recommend taking your time to heat the strawberries, honey, and lemon. You don’t want to heat them too quickly and run the risk of burning your jam!

Plus, it can all be made in one bowl, what more could you want?

You can use any dairy-free milk for this recipe, but we found that almond or oat milk worked best for us. If you wanted to use soy, that would work well and would give the cake a slightly creamier taste. The choice is yours here!

This Betty Crocker recipe is fantastic for anyone after an easy and delicious strawberry shortcake sheet cake! The biscuit base is made from scratch, giving you a buttery texture and scone-like consistency.

Not only does the base taste great on its own but it is elevated beyond belief by the sweetened whipped cream and sugared strawberries! 

Sugaring the strawberries adds extra sweetness to the cake, and sets it apart from other recipes on today’s list. It isn’t tricky to do either, simply mix your strawberries with some granulated sugar.

Stir them occasionally to coat all the strawberries and you are good to go. This also helps to bring sweetness to any bitter strawberries you might have lurking in your refrigerator.

Lemon extract provides the cake with its delicious taste, although you could use fresh lemon juice if you prefer.

Just be mindful that you are not adding too much liquid to the cake mix. You can also add some to the frosting if you want it to have some zing! If not, the vanilla extract will provide plenty of flavors too.

You can swap out the cream cheese and butter for plant-based alternatives to make this cake vegan too!
