  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 oz graham crackers one sleeve, or 9 long crackers
  • 1 lb fresh California strawberries hulled and sliced


  • Line a 9" loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Whip the cream in a standing mixer (or in a bowl with a hand mixer) until soft peaks form. Add sugar and vanilla and whip again for 10 seconds.
  • Reserve 1 cup of the whipped cream to make sure you have enough for the top layer, as well as a handful of the prettiest strawberry slices.
  • Spread ⅓ cup of the whipped cream on the bottom of the loaf pan. Top with graham crackers to cover the bottom, breaking them as needed to fit them in. Top with about ⅔ cup whipped cream, a handful of strawberries, more whipped cream, then another layer of graham cracker. Repeat, ending with the reserved whipped cream and pretty berries. You should have 3 layers of graham crackers and 3 layers of strawberries (including the top).
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours before slicing. Serve slices right out of the pan, don't try to remove the cake.
