Waiting for this delicate, creamy Strawberry Refrigerator Cake to cool and set in the fridge may be pure torture. But we assure you, it's worth it!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 ºF. Grease and flour 13x9-inch pan.
  2. For cake, prepare, bake and cool according to package directions.
  3. Poke holes 1 inch apart in top of cake using handle from wooden spoon.
  4. Puree thawed strawberries with juice in blender. Spoon evenly over top of cake allowing mixture to soak into holes.
  5. For topping, prepare pudding mix according to package directions using 1 cup milk. Fold whipped topping into pudding mixture. Spread over cake. Garnish with fresh strawberries. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.

My Granddaughter has severe allergies to peanuts, so could you please send me peanut free recipes besides. I have been using Duncan Hines cake mixes and frostings. The ones that are peanut free. Many thanks,

I can't find instant pudding and pie filling, would it be ok to use the stuff you have to cook?
