Best Strawberry Bundt Cake
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! 🙂
Best Strawberry Bundt Cake is divine.
Swirling Strawberry Pie filling into each layer makes this cake so drool-worthy!
The cream cheese icing is thick and irresistible. There’s enough to pipe at least two layers of ribbons over top. Yum.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cake.
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Whisk ingredients or mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Generously grease and flour a large bundt pan. Spread half of the cake batter into the bundt pan.
Spoon half of the strawberry pie filling over top of cake batter.
Swirl the Strawberry Pie Filling into the cake batter with a bamboo skewer.
Spread remaining cake batter over first layer.
Spoon remaining Strawberry Pie Filling over top of cake batter.
Swirl Strawberry Pie Filling just into the top layer of batter. Don’t swirl the pie filling into the the bottom cake layer.
Bake cake at 350 degrees for about 45-60 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out with no cake goo on it. (You may have some pie filling, but no cake batter goo.) My cake took 65 minutes to bake completely.
Allow cake to cool completely before removing to dish. If possible, wrap cake with plastic wrap and cool in refrigerator over night. I refrigerated my cake about 5 hours.
I used these ingredients for the cream cheese frosting.
Soften cream cheese and butter.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add vanilla and mix again.
Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Once cream cheese frosting is well mixed, remove to a zip lock back and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes. I usually allow the cream cheese frosting to refrigerate about 1-2 hours.
Pipe frosting over top of cake in ribbons. There is enough to make a couple of layers of ribbons. Add strawberries on top for decoration, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
If you enjoy strawberry desserts, Best Strawberry Bundt Cake is out of this world!
My friends raved over this cake. It’s also great frozen. They froze leftovers for later. I’ve frozen these cakes for several months, either whole or in slices and they come out wonderful either way.
Best Strawberry Bundt Cake has triple the strawberry flavor with strawberry cake mix, strawberry jello and strawberry pie filling in the cake.
