MY REVIEW

"This was ok, not something I would make again. Didn't care for the strawberries after being baked."

MY REVIEW

"It was very good and fairly easy to make but I made it twice and neither time could I get the center done. The second time I cooked it about 50 minutes at 375 degrees and the center was still a bit underdone. Wondered if anyone else had this problem. I thought the next time I would bake the batter about 20 minutes and then put the strawberry mix on and finish baking then."
