1. To make the no-bake strawberry cake: Add the chopped strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice to a saucepan. Cook the strawberries, stirring occasionally, at medium-high heat. When the strawberries boil, turn the heat down and cook at medium-low heat, until the strawberry jam turns a little dark and thick.

2. Filter the strawberry jam with a fine mesh strainer to obtain a thick strawberry syrup. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before using.

3. In a large bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese with 1/4 cup of confectioner sugar, the lime zest, and the vanilla extract using an electric mixer.

4. In another bowl, whip the cold heavy whipping cream with the remaining 1/4 cup of confectioner sugar for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly stiff peaks form.

5. Add the whipped cream to the mascarpone and fold with a spatula to combine.

6. Dip each ladyfinger in the strawberry syrup and lay them on the bottom of a 13×13-inch square baking pan, one next to the other.

7. Top the dipped ladyfingers with half of the mascarpone cream.

8. Arrange strawberry slices on top of the mascarpone.

9. Make another layer of dipped ladyfingers on the sliced strawberries.

10. Top the ladyfingers with the remaining half of the mascarpone cream. Add a final layer of sliced strawberries, cover, and refrigerate the no-bake strawberry cake for a couple of hours before serving.

11. Brush the strawberries with some remaining strawberry syrup before serving. Enjoy! ❤️🍓

Tips for the no-bake strawberry cake recipe

  • Allow enough time for the strawberry syrup to cool before assembling the cake. This will prevent the layers from becoming too runny and will help the cake hold its shape.
  • Make sure to use cold heavy whipping cream and a chilled mixing bowl when making the mascarpone filling. This will help the cream whip up faster and result in a fluffier filling.
  • Don’t fully soak the ladyfinger cookies in the strawberry syrup. Just a quick dip on each side will do to avoid making the cookies too soggy and difficult to handle.

Can I use a different type of cookie instead of ladyfingers?

Yes, you can use any type of cookie instead of ladyfingers. Some alternate options could include shortbread cookies, graham crackers, or even strawberry wafers. However, keep in mind that the texture and flavor may vary slightly from the original recipe. We recommend trying a similar type of dry, crisp cookie for best results.

Can I use frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones for the jam?

Yes, you can use frozen strawberries for the jam, but fresh strawberries will give the best flavor.

How long does the strawberry cake need to chill in the fridge before serving?

The strawberry cake should chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving but overnight is recommended for best results.

Can I use a different type of fruit instead of strawberries?

Yes, you can use a different type of fruit such as raspberries or blueberries.

Can I use a different type of pan for this cake?

We recommended a 13×13-inch pan size for the presentation, but you can use any similar size pan or two 9×13-inch pan. Keep in mind that it’s going to be less easy to cut and serve the strawberry cake form a smaller pan.
