Strawberry "Sheetcake"

I feel the need to preface this by saying that I think strawberry shortcake is the best culinary invention ever. I tried this recipe from my neighbor and I daresay it's an improvement upon the original (something I never thought was possible).

1 White cake mix, mixed as directed
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. whipping cream, whipped
1 pkg. strawberry Danish Dessert (on the Jello aisle)
2 c. sliced strawberries

Pour cake batter onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Let cool.

Cream together cream cheese, lemon juice, and powdered sugar. Fold in whipped cream. Frost sheet cake. Prepare Danish Dessert as package directs for fruit sauce, then add strawberries.

Drizzle fruit sauce over each piece before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.

Note: This makes a lot of cake. We still haven't eaten all of it, but our strawberry/danish dessert combination is dwindling faster than the cake. If you're going to make it for a potluck or something where it will all be eaten at the same time, it might be wise to do two packages of Danish Dessert and four cups of strawberries. 

Sooooo yummy! (But dangerous...I had three pieces for lunch yesterday...)


  1. Ooooh, I had this at a potluck and always wanted to try to make it, now I can! Thanks MJ.

  2. It sounds delicious! Danish Dessert is hard to find out here, but this might just make it worth the hunt. Strawberry shortcake is one of my favorites, too.
