Strawberry Dream Cake I266 Reviews
“Pudding like strawberry cake with a decadent white chocolate frosting.” - by Beth Lemieux
Original recipe yields 2 -9 inch round layers
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9 inch round cake pans.
- Make cake per directions except substitute the 1 1/2 cups of strawberries for the water and add 1 extra egg, (if cake mix calls for 2 eggs add 3), and 8 ounces of the cream cheese at room temperature. Beat well and pour into the prepared pans.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. A toothpick inserted in the center will not come out clean when this cake is done since it is so moist. Let cake cool fully before frosting.
- To Make Frosting: Heat the heavy cream until just beginning to boil. Pour it over the white chocolate (chopped) and the remaining 4 ounces cream cheese. Mix well and let cool. Once cool fold into the whipped topping. Use to frost cooled cake and garnish with sliced fresh strawberries.

"I have made this recipe twice now. Both times it was very good. However the second time I used a cake mix that called for three eggs so I added a forth as the recipe said. (add an extra egg!) Don't do..." See more that. Three eggs is enough the forth makes it just too heavy. It was still good but comparing it to the first cake it was not as good. For best results use the strawberry cream cheese, there is something about it that just makes a difference. I used the regular cream cheese the second time and just added a tablespoon of strawberry preserves and it tasted very good but was not as good as when I used the strawberry cream cheese. As for the icing I did the icing that was suggested the first time and it was good but all the things the other reviewers said I found to be true. Just realize that it will be a little difficult to work with. The second cake I used the icing recipe that I found on here several years ago and it has been my stand by since. 1 cup of whipping cream whipped with 1 box of instant pudding(I use cream cheese flavor) and then fold it into a 8 oz tub of cool whip. It is nice and stiff and tastes great. It compliments this cake well."
"This cake is my husbands new favorite cake! I've made it several times already. Several reviewers mentioned that the strawberry flavor was not strong enough. I've found that this is easily remedied b..." See morey using strawberry cream cheese in the cake and making it a day in advance and storing in the fridge. The flavor is much stronger (and tastier) the next day. Also an easy way to make sure you have no clumps in your frosting; let the cream cheese come to room temperature, dice up into cubes and put in a blender, finely chop the white chocolate and once the cream is warmed melt the chocolate in it then pour the warm chocolate/cream mixture over cream cheese, cover and blend until smooth. I've made the frosting with both cool whip and fresh whipping cream it is much better with heavy whipping cream. This is my go to recipe whenever we have company for dinner.***update*** I just made this with raspberries instead of strawberries and it was AMAZING! I just used raspberry cream cheese and sweetened pureed raspberries that i put through a siv(sp?) to get out all the seeds.*** The possibilities are endless, made it again with pineapple cream cheese and pureed canned pineapple and hubby loved it! Maybe even more than the strawberry***"
"Everybody loved this. I made it in a 13X9 sheet pan for easy transport. I also used strawberry cream cheese in the cake, and unsweetened strawberries (measured before I pureed them) with 2.5 T sugar..." See more added. Everything mixed up fine in my mixer after a few minutes. The cake baked in about 32 minutes, and was moist but not soggy. The frosting was also delicious- make sure the cream cheese is at room temp. and the whipped topping is thawed for it to mix well. If assembling a layer cake, the frosting would definitely need to be refrigerated in order to hold, as well as after the cake is made or it will fall apart. Otherwise, this was easy and just delicious!"
