So I tried adding diced fresh strawberries to my vanilla cake today. Not a filling but the actual raw strawberries to the cake batter. They turned into gross looking globs of goo. icon_sad.gif
Is there anyway for me to add this without it turning out like that? Would adding bigger pieces make a difference or maybe even frozen strawberries instead of the fresh?

Thanks so much in advance,

What were you trying to make when adding the strawberries: strawberry cake or vanilla cake with strawberries in it?

It was vanilla cake with strawberries added to it.

all the recipe's I saw, the strawberries were stirred in by hand. I wonder if dried strawberries would work.
