  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a fluted tube pan such as a Bundt® pan.
  2. Combine the cake mix and pudding mix in a bowl. Thoroughly whisk together the sour cream, vegetable oil, eggs, water, and 1/4 cup frosting in a separate bowl, then stir into the cake and pudding mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared tube pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Frost the cooled cake with the remaining strawberry frosting.

The grocery store didn't have strawberry cake mix so I used vanilla cake mix and vanilla pudding mix, it was awesome!

I made these last night and I was very disappointed. They are so oily. The oil soaked through the cupcake liner. They taste like they aren't cooked fully.

I made this last night for a co-workers birthday today. It is delicious! However, I probably would reduce the oil to 3/4 cup. I also added 2 cups of white chocolate chips - yes, it's very sweet! Also, I microwaved the remainder of the strawberry frosting and drizzled it over the finished cake. Pretty as well as tasty!

I didn't have strawberry cake mix so I used lemon with lemon pudding! This is so good!

This recipe and the Too Much Chocolate Cake recipe are now my go-to recipes for cupcakes. They come out so perfectly moist, fluffy, airy, and light with beautiful flavor and they rise nicely too. I think I put my first batch (which I did vanilla instead of strawberry) in the fridge for like an hour or two, and they were even better afterward. Love!

I made a very similar cake to this before (Lisa's chocolate cake ~ from this site). The main thing with this recipe is to reduce the oil to just 1/2 cup (1/2 cup of apple sauce also works very well). I did add one cup of white chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of strawberry extract and one teaspoon of almond extract. I baked two of these cake for the guys at work and everybody loved it. The cake had disappeared so fast. The result was a very moist and flavorful bundt. certainly be making this cake again. Forgot to mention I used the Pilsbury cake mix.

My husband loves strawberry cake, so I made this for his birthday. He was amazed. It is so moist. I didn't have store bought frosting, so I made cream cheese frosting and threw some strawberries in it. It was wonderful!!!

Used Pillsbury strawberry cake mix with pudding already in mix, 1 cup of sour cream, 3/4 cup of oil (other reviewers stated), 1/4 cup of pureed frozen strawberries that were nuked in the microwave, 4 eggs, and 1/2 t. of imitation strawberry extract. WOW! This is going to amazing with my strawberry cream cheese frosting!!!
