Strawberry ooey gooey Cake


   My Mom's birthday is this Tuesday June 14th, so my sisters and I decided to throw her a surprise party today! We've been scheming and planning it for a few weeks now. My sis Lindsey and I were in charge of the desserts, so of course, I chose a chocolate cake to make. Lindsey found this Strawberry Cake on The Hungry Housewife's  yummy blog! When she started describing this wonderful 'ooey gooey' cake she had found I said, "Oh, Lin, let me make it. I would ♥ to blog about it!"  So here it is. It was soooo dang yummy. And ooey gooey. And wonderful. A perfect summer dessert. Oh, and I should mention, very easy to make!



STRAWBERRY OOEY GOOEY CAKE
  • 1 package (18 oz) Strawberry Cake mix
  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened
  • 4 large Eggs, divided
  • 1 (8 oz) package Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 (16 oz) box Confectioners Sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh Strawberries
  • Sweetened Whipped Cream  (optional)
  • Strawberry for garnish (optional)

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x13 baking pan.
In a large bowl combine cake mix, butter and one egg. Press mixture into pan.

In a seperate bowl, beat cream cheese and 3 eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
Gradually beat in confectioners sugar until well combined.  Stir in the fresh strawberries.
Pour cream cheese batter over the cake mixture. Bake for 35 minutes or until center is set.

Cool completely, cut into squares to serve. Garnish with whipped cream and strawberries, if desired.
