Strawberry Lemonade Cake

Here is a cake recipe with all the flavors of spring, but tastes great anytime. And because fast, easy treats bring me so much joy, this recipe includes one of my favorite ingredients: a cake mix.

Using an electric mixer, combine:

  • 1 lemon cake mix
  • 1/3 C oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C water
  • 1 t almond extract

Pour into a greased 9X13 cake pan.

Dollop one 21-ounce can strawberry pie filling onto batter:

Swirl with a knife and smooth with a rubber spatula:

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes:

Serve warm with whipped topping:

    Just wondering if you took out some of the ingredients for the cake mix because you were adding the pie filling…. My cake mix calls for 3 eggs 1& 1/3c water and 1/3c oil. Would I used the called for ingredients in the cake mix plus the pie filling? Please let me know as I would really like to make these. I am going to make muffins from them and have gotten a cherry pie filling as I couldn’t get strawberry. Thanks for your help.

      Hi Lori!
      Completely ignore all the instructions on the cake mix. Just mix the powdered mix with the oil, eggs, water and extract in the amounts listed at the beginning of the post and mix.
      I think cherry would be delicious! That’s what I love about these kinds of recipes. You can easily change out the cake mix flavor and the filling flavor to make a different cake. Let me know how it goes! 🙂 Thanks for reading!
