I revamped a recipe calling for lemons to use strawberries for Easter Sunday Lunch. As I was typing out the recipe, I relized I used the wrong portion of an ingredient! But the mistake worked and this recipe was a hit. When my uncle asked what it was I said "Strawberry Pie Cake Surprise Thing", he was quite fond of that title and said it fit the dessert. Well, I decided to shorten the name by dropping the "thing"! Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Strawberry Pie Cake Surprise

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat overn to 350 degrees. Spray torte pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place an 8-in circle of parchment or wax paper over center of pan.
  2. Combine cake mix, sour cream, egg, and 1 tbsp strawberry extract; whisk 1 minute. Pour batter into pan; spread evenly and bake 10-12 minutes or until center is firm.
  3. Remove pan from oven and let stand 3 minutes. Invert cake onto cooling rack and cool 10 minutes. For glaze, combine 2 tbsp strawberry extract and 2 tbsp powdered sugar in microwavable bowl. Whisk together and microwave on high 15-20 seconds or until sugar is dissolved. Transfer cake to serving platter and brush with glaze.
  4. For filling, combine pudding mix, mile, 1/4 cup strawberry extract, and 1 finely diced strawberry; whisk briskly until smotth. Fold in 1/2 container of whipped topping, set aside. (If color seems weird, add a few drops of red food coloring to turn a tad pink.)
  5. For topping, whisk cream cheese, 1 finely diced strawberry, and 1/4 cup strawberry extract until smooth. (Tip...whisk cream cheese until creamy before adding other ingredients to prevent clumping.) Slowly add 1 cup powdered sugar; whisk until smooth. Add remaining whipped topping all at once; fold until combined. (Mixture will appear curdled but will smooth out when spread.)
  6. Spread filling into well of cake (Yes it will seem like too much filling, just keep spreading.) Spread topping over filling. Slice strawberries in half and arrange over top.
