Strawberry shortcake bundt cakes are an adorable spin on a classic summer time treat! This recipe is made with a cream cheese pound cake that is moist with a light crumb. It pairs perfectly with fluffy homemade whipped cream and macerated berries.

Cream cheese pound cake is a very simple cake that’s full of flavor. I usually make it in a full size bundt pan, but I prefer single serving cakes for strawberry shortcake!

My mini bundt pan creates the most adorable little cakes that are perfect for serving company. I also love to use it to make mini lemon bundt cakes! If you don’t have a mini bundt pan, then you can double this recipe for a full size bundt pan or bake in a loaf pan!
