    What is a regular size cake mix for this recipe. Cake mixes used to be 18.25 ozs and not are 15. Gave it a one star because directions on size of cake were not clear.

    I've used this recipe a few times now and everyone loves the fresh strawberries inside and it is super moist! I was looking at different similar recipes though and I am curious when this recipe says, "regular size" cake mix, what size is "regular"? 15.25, 16.25 or 18 ounces?

    I have an old family recipe. It is from scratch and differs significantly from this one, I like my recipe better.

    I just made this cake. It rose but when I took it out of the oven, it fell. Then I dumped it in the garbage. I won't be making it again!
