  • 2 lbs strawberries approximately 4 ½ cups, stems removed and diced
  • ⅛ + 1/4 cup granulated sugar divided
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 box strawberry cake mix
  • 1 block cream cheese softened
  • 12 tbsp salted butter melted
  • Olive oil or cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 350℉. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with olive oil, or cooking spray. Set aside. Remove stems and dice the strawberries. Pour the strawberries into the baking dish.
  • Sprinkle the ⅛ c sugar and flour over the strawberries, and stir lightly to even coat the strawberries with the mixture.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix the softened cream cheese with the remaining ¼ c sugar on medium speed until smooth and well mixed. Add cream cheese mixture by the spoonfuls on top of the strawberries. Do not spread, just leave in spoonfuls.
  • Sprinkle the bag of strawberry cake mix evenly over the strawberries and cream cheese. If there are any large clumps, lightly separate with a spoon or your fingers, and pat down to smooth.
  • Lastly, pour the melted butter over the cake mix as evenly as possible.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top starts to brown, and the cake is cooked through. Let cool for about 10 minutes in the baking dish before serving. I love to serve it warm with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.


You can use fresh or frozen strawberries.
You can substitute the strawberry cake mix for any other flavors you would like. Yellow, white, and even chocolate cake mix are all great substitutions.
This can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week in a tight sealed container. Just reheat in the microwave.
