To make it, there are no fancy techniques. To start, just melt the stick of butter in the mixing bowl. Then pour in the cake mix into the melted butter and stir until the mix resembles coarse wet sand. Set it aside.

After that, pour the strawberries into the greased 9×13 dish. Layer on slices off cream cheese after that. To finish, top evenly with the buttery cake mixture. Then bake at 350 for about half an hour or until the strawberries are bubbly and the top is a beautiful golden brown color.

  1. I am making this 2maro!! What a delicious yet easy to make dessert!! I like the cherry pie filling over the strawberry but that’s simple also just switch one 4 the other! Thankyou so much 4sonrus for yet another amazing recipe!!

    1. You’ve got that right, Diana. We swap the pie fillings allllll the time. We’ve used blueberry, cherry, and peach. There are so many tasty options!

    1. Sure, it’s like any other cake after baking. It can sit out on the counter, but I wouldn’t recommend leaving it out overnight or anything like that. You can cover the whole dish with cling wrap and refrigerate any leftovers for use within the next 2-3 days.

    1. It never even occurred to me to try it cold. We heat up leftovers in the microwave. Let me know how you like it if you try it though!

  2. Oh my!! This is the most delicious cake ever!! I made it with the canned strawberries and for some extra pizzazz I put some fresh strawberries around when serving…as it is strawberry time in Florida!! There were no leftovers as the gals took leftovers home. I made this dessert for my Domino group…Thanks…

    Thank you so very much for this wonderful recipe. It was great. I added 2 sticks of butter in the cake mix. I also sprinkled some powdered sugar on top of the strawberry filling before adding the cream cheese slices. The family loved it so much we didn’t have leftovers 😊.

  4. My husband loves this! Instead of using 2 cans, i use 1 can + fresh sliced strawberries with a little splenda. He said it’s the best thing I’ve ever made
