Simple Strawberry Cake

I'm not a fan of boxed strawberry cake mixes,so I tweaked a white cake,and this is what I got. Its very easy to make. If you don't have fresh strawberries, use thawed frozen ones,but not the kind packed in sugar. Before pulverizing the berries,esp the frozen ones,toss a tsp of sugar in with them.

Butter Cakes

Butter Cakes

I find that any of the cake mixes can be enhanced and made richer by using 1 stick of butter subbed for the oil in most of the recipes. I cream the butter first and then add the eggs and mix till fairly smooth. Then I add the mix and water a little at a time till the consistency is smooth and light. I usually cut the water by as much as a 1/8 cup. Bake as usual. You'll find that the cake is more like a sponge cake with half the trouble and ingredients.

Stupid instructions on box

Stupid instructions on box

On your caramel turtle brownie box, step 2 says mix, stir, & then bake immediately, BUT you need to go to step 3 to put the caramel into the raw batter before going to step 4 which is bake. DUH! Gets better editor!
