Gluten Free Ambrosia Sunshine Cake with Strawberries
Hurry and go make this cake before your strawberries are gone, you won't be dissappointed. This is one of our favorite versions of strawberry shortcake. I grew up eating this cake, and of course decided to make it gluten free. I was a little worried to make it dairy free because the original recipe has a lot of milk and butter, which gives it a great taste. I made my substitutions and it came out great. The cake is light and has a great texture. You can use it however you like, but when we add our strawberries and cream(some of us use cream, others use powdered sugar), I usually slice each piece in 1/2 so there is less cake and more berries! So the original cake is twice as thick as you are seeing. Hope you like it!
