TikTok foodie’s no-bake strawberry cake is super easy to whip up

Amali, AKA milkteamali on TikTok, shares recipes for Korean milk teas, quick snacks and easy desserts. Each tutorial is scored to relaxing music and shot against a backdrop of calming plants. So if you’re looking for some foodie ASMR, Amali has got the formula down pat. A few of her staples include mini BLT sandwiches with freshly baked bread, banana milk and, of course, the famous Dalgona (whipped) coffee

The home chef’s most popular video is her simple berry cake. If it tastes as good as it looks, then it is certainly worthy of the effort. No oven required!

Amali takes two slices of white bread and cuts the leaves off of some fresh strawberries. She puts these ingredients aside, then mixes 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 cup of heavy cream and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Next, she cuts the crust off of the bread and spreads strawberry jam and the cream mixture on it.

Amali places the strawberries on one piece of bread then tops it with the other slice. She coats the sides of the sandwich with more cream, wraps it in plastic, then refrigerates it for 30 minutes. 

After it cools, she cuts it diagonally and plates each half upright. The strawberry slices nestled in layers of cream are exposed, which makes for a delectable presentation. 

Unsurprisingly the no-bake cake racked up 2.4 million views on TikTok

“I’m gonna make these for my friends and our picnic,” one user wrote

“I used to eat these all the time in Japan. I miss them,” another said

“That looks good, my mouth is watering,” someone commented
