A Fresh Berry Chantilly Cake is a white cake filled with delicious lemon curd, and to top it off with a covering of whip cream frosting and raspberries.
This cake is utter perfection. One bite leaves you feeling refreshed and makes you want another slice (or two, but who’s counting).
We decided to bake this recipe because we honestly love cake, and it’s always nice to discover new recipes for the family. I mean, who doesn’t love a delightful dessert with a nice cup of tea on the side?
But in all seriousness, I love baking, and I love creating recipes, whether it’s main courses, snacks, or desserts like the Berry Chantilly Cake.
I have created multiple delicious and simple recipes on the blog. Check them out! They are perfect desserts to share with family and friends or just yourself!
Here is a family favorite of ours, Carrot Cake. This recipe is unique because cream cheese is in the frosting and in the cake, which creates a moist, rich and delightful dessert.
The next popular dessert recipe is the one and only Chocolate Cake. This dessert goes perfectly with events such as graduation parties, birthdays, and welcome home events.
This Chocolate Cake Recipe is moist but not too moist to the where it’s soggy because no one likes a soggy cake. Not only is it moist, but it’s rich with chocolate flavor.
This cake is different from any other Chocolate Cake recipe I have seen, and that’s because of my secret ingredient. The secret is I use beets, yep, the vegetable. But I promise you won’t be able to taste a hint of beet in the final product.
As some of you may know, Whole Foods has a popular Chantilly cake. So, let’s chat about it!
The Whole Foods Market Berry Chantilly Cake is grandmother-approved, meaning it will become a family favorite for many years.
So instead of paying for an expensive cake, you can make a homemade version that is just as tasty! Not only is it cheaper to create at home, but you can customize the cake with your choice of fruit.
I’m pretty confident that our recipe tastes better than the Whole Foods cake, and besides, wouldn’t you agree that everything tastes better homemade?
