Strawberry Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

This Strawberry Cake is a soft and moist strawberry cake with real strawberries inside. It’s topped off with a rich and delicious cream cheese frosting!

1 15.25 ounce box Strawberry Cake mix ( I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme)
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
3 large eggs
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup fresh chopped strawberries

Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup butter softened
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the cake mix, water, oil, eggs and sour cream. Using a hand mixer, beat on low speed until combined, and then on medium speed for about 30 seconds. Dump in the cup of strawberries and mix by hand, until just combined.
Pour batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Let cake cool completely before frosting.
For frosting: In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until combined and creamy. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until combined. Add the milk and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until frosting is smooth and free of any lumps. Frost cake and serve! ♥

Store cake covered in the refrigerator up to 3 days, if you have any leftovers.
