  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ⅓ cups sugar
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces Cool Whip (Homemade Version)
  • 1-pint fresh blueberries
  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries, halved


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter and flour a 9x13 rectangular pan.
  2. To your stand mixer, add the butter and sugar and beat them together until light and fluffy on medium speed, 2-3 minutes, then add in the eggs one at a time 15 seconds apart along with the vanilla, then lower the speed to low and add the milk until smooth.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt, then add to the stand mixer on low speed until just combined.
  4. Pour into the rectangular pan, shake gently back and forth to make sure the batter is evenly distributed, and bake for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Once cooled, spread cool whip over the top.
  6. Dry your fruit very well with a paper towel; place the blueberries in top left corner and arrange the strawberries in stripes.
