This is the Buttermilk Country Cake with Strawberry Mousseline.
The Buttermilk Country Cake is from TCB, but it’s also the cake used in the Cradle Cake in RHC. I really love this cake. This might be my second fave yellow cake (with the Golden Luxury Butter Cake holding first place)—it’s got a wonderful flavor and a nice, soft texture. It doesn’t break and has a lovely crumb. In the sliced pic, the cut on the left was made with a knife, while the right was made with the side of the cake server, which just goes to show you, a knife works better!!!
The Strawberry Mousseline is ‘regular’ mousseline with powdered freeze dried strawberries added. The strawberry flavor was very intense and the color a beautiful dark pink. On the whole, it tasted like a lightly sweetened strawberry butter. Super fresh tasting and smelling!
Everyone really loved this cake. It was cut at 9:30, and there was only a very teeny piece left by 1:00. I ate it so I could clean up! I got lots of nice emails in response. This cake could easily take chocolate or white chocolate curls for that ‘extra something,’ but I went for the direct hit!
