Step 1: Gather the Ingredients.....

Strawberry Cake

  • 16.5 ounces Strawberry Supreme Cake Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Chocolate Pudding

  • 3.9 ounces chocolate pudding
  • 1 cup milk

Vanilla Whipped Cream Frosting

  • 8 ounces extra creamy whipped cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4-6 strawberries chopped
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup

Step 2: Baking the Cake & Making the Pudding....

For the Strawberry Cake:

Beat cake mix ingredients in a bowl at medium speed until well combines. Grease a 13x9 pan and add cake mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Take cake out and let cool.

Once the cake has cooled down a bit now it's time to 'poke' it. Take a straw and insert to make holes all over the cake.

For the Chocolate Pudding :

With an electric mixer blend together the milk and chocolate pudding mix until completely blended, around 3 minutes. Pour the pudding over top of cake then use a spatula to spread evenly while pushing the pudding into the poke marks. Refrigerate to let the pudding set for around 2-3 hours.

Step 3: For the Topping....

Vanilla Whipped Cream Frosting:

Just before serving add vanilla to tub of whipped cream and stir to combine.

Step 4: Put It All Together....

Spread whipped cream all over the top of the cake. Top with chopped strawberries and chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
