Strawberry Refrigerator Cake from Duncan Hines {Giveaway}

I love cakes straight out of the fridge. Something about cold cake and frosting just hits my sweet tooth straight on. I’m also a sucker for any fruit related desserts so when I came across this recipe for Strawberry Refrigerator Cake I thought it would be perfect for our 4th of July celebration. A flag design with fruit or hearts made out of strawberries for Valentine’s Day would look smashing on top of this cake with minimal effort.

I was very surprised how well this cake kept. If you are thinking you have to finish it up in a day or two like many desserts with fruit, not to worry. The cake did not get soggy as I anticipated and was still perfect four days later! I love the flavorful, moist cake and could just sit and eat the topping. Sigh…


1 pkg Duncan Hines® Moist Deluxe® Strawberry Supreme Cake Mix
2 pkgs sweetened, frozen sliced strawberries (10z)  thawed


1 box vanilla instant pudding and pie filling (3.4 oz)
1 cup milk
2 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping
fresh strawberries for garnish

Substitution Ideas

Other pudding flavors such as white chocolate, french vanilla, cheesecake
Fresh strawberries instead of frozen
Sugar free pudding or lite whipped topping


Prepare cake as directed on box in greased and floured 13×9 inch pan at 350 degrees. Cool.

Polk holes one inch apart using handle from wooden spoon. (All my wooden spoons have flat handles and I had to substitute a serving spoon with a bit larger base. I made my holes more than one inch apart and then added more holes as needed. I will next time make them a bit closer together to start.)

Puree thawed strawberries with juice in blender. Pour over cake allowing the liquid to soak pool into the holes and soak into the cake.

Prepare pudding mix using 1 cup milk. Fold in whipped topping with pudding mixture. Spread over top of cake and refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. Garnish with strawberries.
