Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 18 1/4 ounce package devil's food cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 10 ounce package frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed
1 In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 egg, sugar and vanilla; mix well. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, water, oil and remaining eggs. Beat on low speed until moistened; beat on high for 2 minutes. Pour half of the batter into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in, baking pan. Drop half of the cream cheese mixture by tablespoonfuls over the batter. Repeat layers. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl the cream cheese mixture. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (cake may crack). Cool on a wire rack. Meanwhile, process strawberries in a blender or food processor until smooth. Serve over cake.
