This cake was no dream. A bit more like a nightmare, at least as far as prep is concerned. It looked deceptively simple, just white cake mix, frozen strawberries and cream cheese and with a really high rating from a lot of people.
After reading all of the reviews I made a ton of changes and I hope it works out but if it doesn’t that is o.k. as I have another cake recipe lined up just in case. Here are the changes I made. I added 1/8 teaspoon red food dye to make sure it was nice and pink. I also added 1 tsp strawberry extract to make sure it tasted really strawberry-y. I did not add an extra egg (in this case egg white). I also used strawberry cream cheese instead of regular.
So I basically put all the wet ingredients in the blender, I can’t quite be sure how much frozen strawberries I had, (I used my own in the freezer) because it wouldn’t blend for me to measure it but I would guestimate about 1 1/2 cups, to these I added 2 TBS sugar. I also put in 1/3 cup water. Then the oil, the egg whites then the cream cheese and extract. Then I just followed the box directions and basically mixed the dry and the wet with a hand mixer and added the food coloring at that time.
Everything turned out good. It wasn’t the best cake in the world but it was pink and it definitely had a good strawberry flavor. The texture was good, kind of spongy and moist but not so moist as I like it but not dry either.
