Good Heavens!!!! What started out to be the cake from H*** turned out to be HEAVENLY!! To start out my bundt pan walked off and so I used an angelfood cake pan..heavily greased and floured. Second the strawberry ice cream I had ran away with the bundt pan (I hope they are happy together)so I subbed vanilla and added 1/2 cup homemade strawberry puree, slightly chunky. Worked like a charm! I had no berry liquor so I used 1 TBS milk, 1 TBS strawberry liquid drained from the puree and 1 tsp vanilla extract. OMG this is so moist and rich that we almost made ourselves sick. Thanx Rita this was so simple and oh so good!!!!
I'm sorry. I was kind of disappointed. The cake had no strawberry flavor to it -- and I did use expensive strawberry ice cream. I did add 1 tsp. almond extract, and that was all I could taste. It basically tasted like a moist white box cake with pink cream cheese frosting. I won't make this again.
This was a good cake and very easy. I made it for my husbands birthday and he loved it.
