It’s hard to beat the classic combination of fruity desserts and cool whipped cream in the warmer months, and that iconic pairing of sweet summer produce and cream inspired these fruit-filled recipes. From a beautiful peach layer cake to a strawberry-packed pie, each of these juicy fruit desserts gets a generous and rich helping of freshly whipped cream.
1. Peaches & Cream Cake
This three-tiered cake pairs one of summer’s beloved stone fruits with vanilla cake layers made fluffy by whipped cream folded into the batter. A final veil of Vanilla Buttercream covers the peach-packed layers within.
2. Berries and Cream Pie
In this Berries and Cream Pie by blogger Kate Wood, there is a tangy buttermilk filling, buttery pecan-laced crust, and sweet berry topping. This pie represents everything we’ve come to know and love about quintessentially Southern desserts. Berries fit perfectly with this pie, but peaches, plums, and dark cherries would be a great addition.
3. Strawberries & Cream Pie
Double-crusted and jam-packed with strawberries, this pie is perfect for summer celebrations. It’s best when served with a generous scoop of freshly whipped cream.
4. Mixed Berries & Cream Bars
An elegant spin on a familiar formula, the coolest dessert of summer has arrived. We paired a slightly salty pretzel cake base with a cream filling and topped it off with a scattering of fresh berries.
5. Blueberry Biscuits
These berry-studded biscuits take classic buttermilk biscuits and give them a bright, blueberry update. They’re also flavored with a bit of lemon zest for added zing. When paired with lemon whipped cream, these biscuits are perfect for summer mornings and weekend brunches with loved ones.
6. Strawberries and Cream Icebox Cake
With fresh strawberries nestled amongst pillows of fluffy frosting, this fruity treat is as beautiful to serve as it is easy to make. Mix it up by replacing the strawberries with your favorite berry.
