Easy Strawberry Custard Cake

Recipe by Marie

I have not tried this yet, but it sounds awesome and would go together in no time. The cream and strawberries sink to the bottom of the cake, forming a lush custard layer.

I was looking for something to bring to game night and this looked so easy and so good that I had to try it. There was a couple of things I did a little differently. I used the yolk and the white of the eggs, and I substituted 5 packets of Splenda for the sugar, sprinkling it over the strawberries. Instead of flouring the pan I greased it, then sprinkled some of the dry cake mix in and then tapped the sides of the pan on the bench to spread it around, and the leftover mix went back in with the cake mix for the cake. I misread the recipe on the cake mix and used both the egg white and the yolk. Didn't make a difference other than to make the cake a light yellow. The Splenda sweetened the berries, which were quite tart, but they were not overly sweet and the cake was just sweet enough to counter balance the tartness of the berries. With Cool Whip on top it was just right for everyone, because I got rave reviews all over the place! Thank you Marie for sharing this quick and delicious cake with us. I will be making it again soon with strawberry season coming up soon! Linda
