I am usually not a fan of strawberry cake (I was raised on the mix). However, the first time I made this cake, I was amazed at how wonderful it tasted. Now, I make this cake for two of my co-workers on their birthdays. They absolutely love it!
I have been a Cake Mix Doctor fan for years and used only her recipe for strawberry cake. I was a little skeptical of trying a new one but this is a delightful variation! Whipping and folding the egg whites gives this cake a nice springy feel. Plus, a reduction in the amount of oil made it much less dense. This is a very nice spring dessert!
This is a very good cake !!!
LOVE STRAWBERRIES, BUT IF i MAKE THIS CAKE, I WILL USE SUGAR FREE JELLO, AND SWEET N LOW ON THE STRAWBERRIES !!! i PREFER A 9 X 13, AND WILL USE COOL WHIP LIGHT. THEN I WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE A SECOND PIECE LATER IN THE EVENING !!! LOL
I was looking for something different to take to a Memorial Day cookout, when I got this recipe in your newsletter. All I can say is WOW! It was the hit of the cookout. My sister-in-law asked me to make it again for a gathering last weekend. It stays so moist and the flavor tastes fresh and light. I will be making it again in a couple of weeks for my family reunion. I'm sure I will get the same reaction there.
