I wish I would've read the reviews before making this. The outside was done, but the middle was raw slop. I cut off the edges and ate it with the strawberries I was able to salvage. Bummer!

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

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.

This cake is delicious!!! I made it with a three berry mix as I didn't have strawberries on hand. I will have to try it with the strawberries as well. The cake itself it great alone. I will be making this again. Oh, I did serve it with frozen vanilla yougut, PERFECT!
