I was making a cheesecake and talking at the same time and added way too much liquid, so a cream cheese glaze was born. That meant a cake was in order... a strawberry one to be exact !
Now, usually that means opening a box of cake mix and Jello, but not now. I'm trying to make most of our food from scratch. Time to get creative !
This cake is called a "poke cake" because you poke holes into it and pour a sauce over it. Usually done with Jello, this one uses a fruit sauce. YUM !!!

How to Make No Jello Strawberry Supreme Poke Cake, Millie's

Step-by-Step

  • 1~*~*~ I put a cream cheese glaze on this cake, but it would be excellent with sweetened whipped cream or cool whip instead. ~*~*~
  • 2* Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 3Wash and hull strawberries. Cut in half into food processor. Pulse 8 short bursts for a rough chop.
  • 4Remove 1 cup of the strawberries and set aside. Now add the agave nectar or corn syrup and process till a nice and smooth puree.
  • 5Pour the puree into a fine strainer to remove seeds. Work puree back and forth with a spatula to push liquid on through. Set puree to the side.
  • 6Into a large bowl sift flour, sugar and baking powder. Add salt and mix well with a spoon or whisk to blend.
  • 7Make a hole in the center .
  • 8Now add the milk, coconut oil, eggs and vanilla.
  • 9Using a mixer, mix for about 1 minute. Now add in the rough chopped strawberries and mix just to blend together.
  • 10Pour into a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake 20-25 minutes @ 350F until toothpick comes out clean.
  • 11While cake is still hot, poke holes into cake. I use the handle end of a wood spoon. Slowly pour the strawberry puree over cake. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 12Once cake is cold you can top with your favorite cream cheese icing, glaze or cool whip or homemade sweetened whipped cream. Store in refrigerator.
  • 13**** For an easy cream cheese glaze, use soften cream cheese (2 pks.) , mixed till smooth then add 1 tsp. of vanilla and 2 tbsp. lemon juice and a dash of salt. Mix well then add in 1 box of powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing on low. Add enough agave nectar or corn syrup to thin into a glaze.
