Strawberry Shortcake

I have had a sweet tooth her lately. Strawberry Shortcake has been on my mind for weeks. No matter what I ate to break the craving, the craving was still there. So I decided to finally give in and make an old recipe that I have had for years. Please note that this recipe is always a hit at any type of event. If you are expecting to take home left overs, you will be surprised at how fast this cake will disappear.

One box of yellow cake mix
Bag of frozen strawberries
1 tub of cool whip
1 small can of sweet condensed milk

To make this wonderful delicious cake, you first need to bake the cake following the directions on the cake box. I chose to make 2 cakes in 8 inch pans because I wanted to make some for home and to take some to work. I still used the same amount of  ingredients.

Once the cake is done either leave the cake in the pan or switch the cake out to the serving pan.

 Take a fork and poke holes all over the cake. Once you have plenty of holes in the cake take the small can of sweet condensed milk and pour all over the top of the cake.

At this point you need to make sure your frozen strawberries are thawed. Place the strawberries all over the cake. If you buy whole strawberries you will need to cut them in half.

Once the you have all the strawberries on the cake, the final thing to do is add the whip cream. Make sure the whip cream is thawed, it makes for easier spreading.
The cake will need to be refrigrated until time to eat. I usually let the my finished cake sit over night. It gives the sweet milk time to soak in the cake and make it moist.
Hope you enjoy this favorite of mine as much as my family and I do. If you make this cake please let me know your thoughts. I love comments and I always try to respond to all them.
Doesn't this look so yummy? I hope I have you craving this Strawberry Shortcake. Have a wonderful day!

  1. Oh my! I can just imagine that with a cold glass of milk. I did a cake years ago that I poked holes in but I poured buttermilk in it. I just bought strawberries but they weren't sweet so I can't try just yet, but definitely keeping as a reminder. Saw you on LWML. Visiting from Stop by when you get a chance.
