A light and fluffy strawberry cake is perfect for your Sunday afternoon spread. Making this dessert is a breeze, and the outcome is nothing short of spectacular, especially for those with a sweet tooth and a penchant for no-bake delights. Don't miss out on trying this recipe.

This no-bake cake offers a delightful fusion of tastes. The combination of creamy strawberry and sweet ladyfingers is a match made in heaven. The simplicity of the recipe is what makes this cake a summer staple for me, especially when strawberries are in their prime.

While numerous no-bake cake variants exist, the combination of ladyfingers with various custard creams tends to steal the show. However, it's worthwhile to explore other options like mousses, jellies, or whipped creams, which are equally delicious, require no baking, and look quite impressive.

The traditional recipe features a delectable, fluffy mixture layered with ladyfingers soaked in sweetened condensed milk. If store-bought cookies aren't your thing, consider making homemade ladyfingers. You can also swap strawberries for raspberries to put a twist on the classic dessert.

Strawberry No-bake Cake Recipe


- 2 packages of long ladyfingers (approx. 4.94 ounces each),
- 15.87 ounces (3 packages) of vanilla homogenized cheese,
