READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This recipe comes from the back of a marshmallow package, I make this when I am short on time, it is very easy to prepare, and the results are delicious.(note: this can be made using a homemade white cake recipe)

WOW!! I found this recipe when I was looking for a way to use up some frozen strawberries so I made this for a casual dinner and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I did increase the marshmallows to a whole package and they gave the bottom of the cake a wonderful gooey texture. LOVE IT!! It was so good served still warm with whipped topping or ice cream!!!
