I love strawberries and this cake made with fresh strawberries is good!  Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and you have a special treat.

1 box Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry Cake Mix
1 (3.4 ounce) box instant banana cream pudding and pie filling
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 cup fresh strawberries, topped, washed, and mashed
Blend cake mix, milk, pudding,  oil and eggs in a large bowl until moistened.  Beat with a mixer for approximately 2 minutes. Fold in bananas and strawberries.  Pour into a sprayed bundt pan or cake pan of your choice.  Cook in preheated 350 degree oven 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake come out clean.  Let cool for 10 to 12 minutes.  Turn onto a plate.  Add frosting of your choice.
I made the following frosting to pour over this cake.  If you use this frosting, cake will need to be refrigerated.  If you want to frost the entire cake, you will need to double this recipe.
Strawberry Frosting
1/2 stick butter or margarine, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
2 to 3 cups confectionery sugar
1 cup strawberries, mashed
Cream together cheese and margarine, add vanilla and strawberries.  Add confectionery sugar until frosting reaches desired consistency.  Pour over cake. Garnish cake with addition strawberries.

  1. I made this cake this weekend – TWO TIMES……and it failed both times!! I made it according to the directions! The first time I baked it the 45 min., then decided to leave it in for the additional 5 more min. Well, when I took it out, it looked fine; but, next thing I knew, it “fell”…and was not done in the center. I had put a toothpick in to test it and everything; didn’t come out on the toothpick! WELL……I decided to not be defeated!! So, last night I once again made this cake! THIS time I left it in the 350 degree oven for a full hour! Took it out…….looked fine; nothing on toothpick! Before I knew it……it “fell” again…..not as bad; but the cake was still partly gummy! Needless to say, I certainly will NOT give this recipe a 3rd try!! BUT……I would love some help & ideas as to why this cake failed! Is the 1 cup of milk correct?? I made the cake in a bundt pan. It tasted good……even gummy…..then threw it away. SAD! :-(

    • If you read the comments, Diane, you will see that other people have made this cake and followed the directions and it came out fine. I never have a problem with it either. You could be doing any number of things. Here is a link that should give you some reasons that cakes fall if you want to check it out. I am so sorry the recipe did not work for you but have not had a problem with it myself. http://www.ehow.com/info_8751389_cake-fall-baking.html

  7. I got off you page once because at the bottom of the page, it says all recipes are copyrighted and you have to have permission to copy or put on another site, and etc. Can I copy them for my own use.. thanks,

    • You certainly can, Vonda, and you can print them out by hitting the little printer at the bottom of each recipe. They are not to be copied and pasted anywhere in their entirety on the internet. That is what the copyright means. You don’t copy them on another site and use them as your own. Thank you for asking and I hope you enjoy the recipes.

  8. Do you measure the strawberries before you mash them, or after? I think this would make a big difference in the texture if I use too many? Thanks!
