This strawberry cake is really sweet but oh-so-good! Make it at least 2 days in advance. It gets moister the longer it sits.

  • Mix strawberry cake mix, water, eggs, and oil together in a bowl using an electric mixer on low speed. Increase speed to medium and mix batter for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, 24 to 27 minutes.

  • Poke holes all over the cake using the handle of a wooden spoon. Pour sweetened condensed milk over cake, letting it seep into the holes. Cool cake to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

  • Pour thawed strawberries over cake, letting juices seep into the holes. Cover cake with whipped topping. Refrigerate.

I just made this twice in the past week! Definitely a great recipe. I did change it up the last time but not because it needed help, it is great the way it is. I had a container of sweetened frozen strawberries that I wanted to use, so I thawed them out, drained the juice into a container and used the strawberry liquid instead of the water. It really added a punch of flavor! I also used a basic cream cheese frosting (because we all love cream cheese so much) and added about a cup of the frozen strawberries to the frosting and mixed it well. Delish! The end product tasted a lot like strawberry shortcake. This recipe is a keeper! Read More

I made this for my daughter s birthday. I didn t change anything and everyone really liked it. I was afraid with the sweetened condensed milk and the sweetened strawberries it would be heavy but surprisingly it wasn t. Very light and disappeared in one evening. Read More

My little girl wanted a strawberry birthday cake so I made this one as written and it turned out great. I m not usually much of a cake person but I am a sweetened condensed milk person and this was a good combo. Read More
