Best Strawberry Bundt Cake

Teresa

I love Nothing Bundt Cakes. I’ve tried to make my versions of several of those desserts, but even better! Best Strawberry Bundt Cake is one of those recipes that turned out spectacularly….with a capital “S.” 🙂 This amazing cake starts with a strawberry cake mix. It’s moist and rich because I add sour cream and half-and-half (not water!) It’s extra flavorful because I add strawberry jello plus vanilla pudding mix. The layers have strawberry pie filling swirled into them for increased strawberry deliciousness! Then the cake is topped with a decadent (and I mean decadent!) cream cheese frosting that makes this cake super sweet and super delightful.

I really enjoy making meals for friends. One of our former neighbors had to have a laser surgery on her face because she’s so susceptible to Squamish cell carcinoma. She’s had several skin cancers removed already, so her dermatologist recommended having this procedure.

I asked if I could bring her a meal. Her husband is a “meat and potatoes” guy. So I whipped up my favorite recipe for taking meals: Roasted Chicken with Rosemary. There’s never been a soul that didn’t like this recipe. Even kids. It’s easy and since it’s gluten free, almost anyone can enjoy it. I made it with boneless chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken, but either way is terrific. I added Garlic Mashed Cauliflower, Pear Salad Halves, Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread and this splendid dessert. Yes, I got rave reviews over everything and they had enough food to eat for a few days while she was in too much pain to cook.

Best Strawberry Bundt Cake is a dessert that’s fantastic for any kind of company or holiday dinner. The recipe makes 16 servings so this is great for potlucks or serving a crowd. If you’re a strawberry lover, this is a dessert you don’t want to be without. Remember with bundt cakes it’s really easy to UNDERCOOK them. Be sure you stick a knife to the bottom of the pan to test for doneness. Except for some of the strawberry pie filling, you should not have any other goo from the cake on the knife when you check.

If you want a rich and decadent dessert that you can make in your own kitchen, this is it! Sweet tooth craving, be gone! 🙂

The cream cheese icing is thick and irresistible. There’s enough to pipe at least two layers of ribbons over top. Yum.

  • Swirl the batter and pie filling together with a bamboo skewer.
  • Spoon remaining cake batter over top of swirled batter.
  • Smooth top again.
  • Spoon remaining strawberry pie filling over top of cake batter.
  • Repeat the swirling process only doing the two top layers and not going to the bottom of the pan.
  • Bake at 350º for 45 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Start testing at 45 minutes.
  • Check with knife every ten minutes after that, putting cake back into the oven until the knife comes out clean. There may be some strawberry pie filling on the knife, but no goo from the cake batter.
  • Allow cake to cool completely before adding icing.
  • Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

  • Pipe cold cream cheese icing over top.

Notes

NOTE: Allow cake to refrigerate wrapped tightly in plastic wrap overnight before frosting.

NOTE: My cake took 65 minutes to bake.
NOTE: I allowed the cake to refrigerate about six hours before adding icing.
NOTE: I refrigerated the frosting 1 ½ hours before frosting cake.
