How to Make Strawberry Lemonade Cake

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pie filling, vanilla extract, eggs, and milk. Mix with an electric mixer just until combined. Pour batter into a 9×13-inch baking dish and bake. While the cake is cooling, make the quick homemade frosting. In a large bowl, beat together pudding mix, powdered sugar, and milk. Stir in a tub of Cool Whip and frost cake.

  • I used a hand-held mixer to mix up the cake batter. Using a mixer will break up the strawberries in the pie filling. If you want bigger chunks of strawberries in the cake, mix the cake batter by hand.
  • Feel free to stir in some fresh chopped strawberries and lemon zest into the cake batter. It really puts the cake over the top.
  • The cake can be made a day or two in advance and stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. I just pop the lid on top of my pyrex glass baking dish and it is good to go.

  2. Super delicious! Perfect for our 70°s days here in Texas. Kids & neighbors loved it. Great recipe Stephanie!
