I am giving this a high rating even though my cake did not turn out at all; some of the cake was still delicious. I strayed from the original recipe, so I do blame myself. I used almost two containers of fresh strawberries and mashed them. This seemed adequate for completely filling the bottom of a 9x13 (not only two cups like the recipe calls for). I also used a little more marshmallows, maybe a quarter of a cup or so. I used a glass 9x13 dish and let it bake. About 35 minutes into it, I checked it. The cake was already getting really brown, so I quickly pulled it to put a toothpick in it. The cake was still very loose in the middle, so I stuck it right back in without even using the toothpick. I put it in a little longer and tried again, but this time I used a toothpick and even though the cake was not solid, the toothpick still came out clean...I figured it was done! I mean, I didn't understand it, but the cake was pretty brown and the toothpick was clean! Well, not only was the cake not done, but I was missing the cake all together! There wasn't enough cake for strawberries. I did try the part of the cake that was done (and it was absolutely delicious!), but most of it I had to dump :( Well, you live and learn, I suppose. Anyway, my advise, don't go crazy with the strawberries, no matter how tempting it may be (or at least use a bundt pan to ensure more cake to strawberry ratio) and make sure you bake all the way through no matter how clean the toothpick is...LOL
