Hello everyone! My friend just asked if I would make his girlfriend a strawberry cake with chocolate icing and chocolate ganache for her birthday. I have never made a strawberry cake and I don't like strawberries so I haven't tasted one either! That being said, do you know of any really good strawberry cake recipes? I usually prefer making scratch cakes but if there is a WASC or box that you can recommend I would appreciate any and all advice! Thank you!

I just made the "Strawberry Layer Cake" recipe on Wilton .com:

18.25oz white cake mix
1/2 cup sour cream
4 egg whites
2 TB oil
mix all above ingredients on high 2-3 minutes,
reduce mixer to low and gradually add:
16oz thawed frozen sweetened strawberries - pureed

The picture is a little deceiving... next time I will definitely add a little pink color to it. (It wasn't pink enough for me.) But it tasted great and was very easy to make.

search, I think I remember seeing a recipe on there. Otherwise, I just folded in a cup of macerated strawberries to my yellow cake at the end....HTH.

I like to use the WASC recipe. I usually double the batch and use one box of white cake mix and one box strawberry. I then use strawberry yogurt in place of the sour cream, and add about 10-12 tablespoons of strawberry preserves. I also add a small amount of strawberry extract into the flavorings. Turns out really good, and people love that there are 'real' strawberries in it. I don't tell them the strawberries come from the preserves and yogurt LOL!

Thank y'all! Do you think it will taste ok with chocolate icing? That sounds like a strange flavor combo to me...

I just made two wasc recipes (the original by Kakeladi and Denise's version that adds oil and extra liquid) using Betty Crocker Strawberry mix and YUCK!!! I have used both recipes many times with other flavors with beautiful results. For some reason both cakes came out heavy, sticky and didn't rise at all...don't know why!!! So beware!

Paula Deen has a great recipe that starts with a box mix.
