My 10-year-old daughter made this herself. The only change I would make is to drain the strawberries first and save the juice and then add it back in to thin it. She didn't do that and we ended up using a LOT of powdered sugar to make it thick enough to stick at all to the cake. It was amazingly delicious and and amazingly moist. A keeper and a great way to use up those strawberries in your fridge that are starting to turn. Plus it's kind of cathartic to smash up those berries with a potato masher.
I wanted to believe the rave reviews, but what a disappointment!! I also used fresh ingredients, eggs and butter at room temperature, but this cake came out very dry.
It might have tasted good, but the mixture was not soupy like it was supposed to be and the mix was extremly thick.
Very good. We'll be making this again.
I made the cake and then put frosting over the top, instead of the glaze. It was good, but it tasted like white cake. Maybe the glaze would have helped that, I'll try again at some point and see. For now, I'm kind of disappointed in it.
Overall very good! I did have to add some milk because the "batter" wasn't very batter-like after following the instructions. But once the milk was added (wish I knew how much; I just added it until it was more of a batter and less of a muffin-type mix). It turned out light, moist and delicious! The perfect summer dessert!
I've been making this cake for three summers and I thought I'd reviewed it but I guess not. This is an outstanding fresh strawberry cake, exactly what I was looking for. I see some people complained that it was dry but that has not been our experience. The last time I made it I poked some holes in the cake which allowed the glaze to sink in. I love that this cake does not call for Jello or a cake mix, it's all natural and tasty. This is a family favorite when strawberries are in season.
Great recipe. I add fresh lemon zest to the glaze and call it . . .Strawberry Lemonade Glaze. Of course. :)
This recipe is simply amazing! I've made it multiple times and it has never failed. The only thing that I do differently is use the Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting from recipe 169257. This combination makes for a much better all around cake and the pink cream frosting makes the cake look beautiful!
We made this for our Valentines Day dessert. I made the cakes in a heart shape pan and then in between the layers I put a cream cheese frosting, then I poured the strawberry glaze over the top. Delicious. Thank you for a great dessert.
