I have a customer who would like a strawberry cake this weekend. I was thinking of just using the DH strawberry in my WASC recipe. Ive never tried the DH strawberry before. Is it any good? Its not gross or fake tasting, is it? When adding flavor what about a little lorann strawberry or some amoretti swirl?
Ive got recipes that state to add fresh strawberries and all that, but this is just a 4" cake for the top tier. Im trying to keep the recipe simple if I can.
I"ve used it and my customers REALLY like it........ If I need added flavor for a cake , I usually add a little jello powder...... I never found it necessary to add anything extra to this cake mix.......
I've never used it with an extender (such as the WASC recipe) but it is a really yummy mix. Without an extender it does not need extra strawberry flavor added IMO. Also, I filled my layers with BC with slices of fresh strawberries and it was very well-received.
I use DH strawberry, I just use milk & strawberry puree (no set amount as I usually am making a strawberry filling, so it's whatever is leftover from that.....maybe a little more milk than puree) to equal the water in the directions, vanilla pudding & 4 eggs, plus the oil that is called for.
Oh, I will agree with superwawa.....if I didn't have strawberry puree I'd still make it. (I just always use milk & pudding in a mix so that's nothing special for the strawberry mix.)
Perfect timing for this post! I was going to try the WASC version of the Strawberry cake too. Grama_j - do you make it straight from the box or do you doctor it up?
