In summer I always crave fruit and anything. My favorite fruit has to be strawberries. They are so sweet and juicy, I don’t know how anyone could not like them. Summer is here and I’m craving strawberries, so I’ve concocted some strawberry candies that I’ll be sharing with you over the next few days. The first one is today’s Strawberry Cream Cake (or Bar)! !
I’ve made a lot of “gooey” recipes in the past but never tried the strawberry version. With some cream cheese and strawberry cake mix, these bars turn out to be delicious and easy to make. Really, there are all kinds of cake mixes and you can make endless gooey recipes!
We love how these bars turned out! ! You can even leave out the strawberries if you want to make them less fruity. It’s not often that such a delicious dessert can be made in about 5 minutes. But with a little preparation, you’ll be enjoying this cake in no time!
