This is actually the second strawberry bread I made (different recipe), but we ate it too fast and didn’t get to take a picture! What can be bad about strawberry bread?? Especially with a glaze?

strawberry cake batter blondies

14 Sep

This is a recipe I’ve had pinned for some time! I finally remembered to buy the strawberry cake mix! These came out super yummy. The original recipe had a white chocolate drizzle which I left out and really didn’t miss. These didn’t last long here!

1 box strawberry cake mix
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1/3-1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8×8 inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly. You want the cake batter to be as dense & thick possible. Mix in the white chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes until edges are just turning brown.
Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes so the center sets.

Strawberry Pie Sour Cream Crumb Bars

27 May

Last week husband had two friends help him move a huge piece of furniture from the dining room to the basement. I happened to have baked these super delicious bars. They were still warm in the baking dish, but the guys ate it up. After they had their share more than half was gone! Definitely making this again. Might try cherry pie filling next time!


Strawberry Pie Sour Cream Crumb Bars
adapted from therecipecritic

1/2 c butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/2 c light brown sugar
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1 c strawberry pie filling (or any kind you would like)
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp all purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 375 and prepare an 8×8 square pan by lining with parchment paper and spraying with cooking spray.
2. Make the crust by whisking together in a medium bowl the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the melted butter. The dough will be crumbly but make sure all of the butter is incorporated.
3. Reserve 3/4 cup of the crust and press the remaining into the bottom of your 8×8 prepared baking pan.
4. For the sour cream filling, mix together in a large bowl the sour cream, sugar, 1 Tbsp flour, egg, and vanilla. Pour over the crust in your 8×8 pan.
5. Spoon your pie filling over the sour cream and gently swirl with the sour cream filling with a spoon.
6. Sprinkle your reserved 3/4 cup crust over the top and bake for 25-28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely and serve into squares. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days. 🙂

Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake with Strawberry Coulis – secret recipe club

4 Mar

Time for a secret recipe club recipe again! This month I was assigned Nichole from cookaholic wife. After checking out the blog and all the yummy looking recipes I decided on this pound cake. Lemon AND strawberries??? What could be better? The pound cake itself was nice and on the lighter side. The strawberry coulis was delicious, I could drink it by itself! Yum!

strawberry banana muffins

11 Jul

we had some bananas going brown so of course i had to use them up – my usual choco chip banana bread sounded way too heavy so i decided to try something different.   these came out really good and not as heavy as the bread!



Strawberry Banana Muffins


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Position rack in center of oven.  Line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan melt the butter. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together the brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and mashed banana. Add the melted butter and stir to combine.
  4. In another large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Fold in the berries, making sure they are coated with flour.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Bake until muffin tops are golden and just firm, 20 to 24 minutes, rotating halfway through baking time. Cool muffins in muffin tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack and cool 5 minutes before serving.
