Who says that an easy dessert can't possibly be good? Well, I beg your can! Give it a try and you'll see what I mean. This recipe came from a co-worker many years ago. She was a young chick but an extremely good cook.

How To Make strawberry bowl cake

  • 1
    ~Thaw completely if using frozen strawberries. ~If using fresh strawberries be sure to chop them, add a little sugar and set aside before you start the cake. This will give the berries time to melt the sugar to make them juicy.
  • 2
    Bake the cake according to box directions making two 9" layers then cool completely.
  • 3
    Place one cake layer into a large clear glass bowl or triffle bowl. Cover with half of the strawberries, then cover with whipped topping. Repeat with second cake layer finishing with whipped topping.

    TIP: If using frozen cool whip* be sure to thaw completely. Add in a teaspoon of vanilla and whisk until well blended. This makes it taste more homemade. I have also made this with yellow layers.
