Strawberry Crunch Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Widget3

I only do EASY baking and this is a family favorite. The recipe can be cut in half if desired - just use an 8x8 pan instead.

I needed a small strawberry cake for my cousin's birthday, and this was one of the only ones I found that said it could be cut in half, so I decided to give it a try. The batter was thicker than any cake batter I've dealt with previously, but it turned out beautifully. I really had to work to spread it throughout the 8x8 pan. However, like I said, it turned out beautifully. The cake was delicious, and my cousin gave it RAVE reviews. Very easy to make, very tasty. Thanks so much!!
