Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten

  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed and drained

Directions

Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt; gradually stir in milk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Place half of the whipped topping in a large bowl; add strawberries. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with half of the strawberry mixture. Top with a second cake layer; spread with custard. Top with a third cake layer; spread with remaining strawberry mixture. Top with remaining cake layer and whipped topping. Refrigerate overnight. Garnish with strawberries and mint if desired. Yield: 12 servings.

"My frozen strawberries came in a 16 oz. container so I used almost all of the whipped topping for the filling and then topped it with sweetened whipped cream. Great recipe. Definitely a keeper!"
