1 box
strawberry cake mix
1 can(s)
sweetened condensed milk
1 pt
strawberries, fresh
1/4 c
1 small
container of whipped topping

Directions Step-By-Step

Cut stawberries in half and mix with sugar and enough water to cover berries. Let set in frige over night.The next day bake cake according to directions on box. Cool completely then poke holes all over the cake. Mix the sweetened condensed milk with 1/2 cup of the water, sugar mixture from the strawberries. Pour mixture all over the cake and let it soak in. Top cake with whipped topping and strawberry halves. Put in frige for at least and hour but is even better the next day.

Very immpressive recipe and the alternates will be a big hit too I'm sure. I'm going to attempt to make all of these in a sugar free version. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks so much! Terri

Hi, June! I do love your recipe "in this format". I somehow got shifted over to a different site offering photo and video formats. At that site a referral was in the Directions referring to adding a portion of the 'water sugar mixture' from the strawberries, yet that mixture is not mentioned in that written format. I am so grateful that I was able to get back to this page, and finally it was all written out correctly!

I was most impressed by the additional combinations offered to you in the 'comments' section. The differences were very interesting. They had a way to create a 'tres leches' cake. There were different ways to mix the berries during the assembly of the cake. I was even taken, June, by your reference to making this with Chocolate Cake and Maraschino Cherries.

I do think you need to ask the 'kitchen crew' about that other page that left a major instruction about using 'the sugar/water mixture'. It's not fair to sabotage your recipe that way. [If they need to talk to me regarding this other format - go ahead and give them my name to get to me and ask questions]
I'll get back to you again soon. First, I need to bake every version of this recipe. YUMMO!!!
