I made this twice, once for an office party and again for a New Year's party, everyone loved it! The 2nd time around I poured in half of the batter, then some of the strawberry puree, then the rest of the batter and topped with more strawberry, it gave it a stronger strawberry flavor. I also topped it with some whip cream, which gave it nice extra kick. Topping it with left over pureed strawberries seemed like over kill and was just too strong.
