Strawberry Yogurt Cake. . .

Tried and true recipes are always the best!

However, many years ago, I read this recipe for Strawberry Yogurt Cake
on the back of a Betty Crocker White Cake Mix 
and it is now a family tradition.

Moist, light, tasty and lovely to behold
On Crooked Creektt it's a "tried and true" Spring cake!

Strawberry Yogurt Cake


1 pkg. Betty Crocker Super Moist White Cake Mix
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 egg whites
1 container (6oz.) Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13" X 9" X 2" pan.

Beat cake mix, water, oil, egg whites and yogurt
in a large bowl on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Pour into prepared pan. 

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until cake springs back 
when touched lightly in center; cool completely.


1 container (8oz.) Cool whip
1 container (6oz.) Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt
Red Food Coloring
Small container of fresh Strawberries

Fold in 1 container yogurt 
and 1 to 2 drops of red food coloring into the whipped topping. 
Spread over top of cake.

Garnish with fresh strawberries.
Refrigerate remaining cake.

For a decorative effect,
slice the strawberry leaving the stem attached.

Fan the strawberries in a cluster and  on each corner of the cake.

This cake reminds me of the "Icebox Cakes" of my Youth.

Pretty enough to serve at a Ladies Luncheon or Tea,
I have taken this cake to many gatherings, meetings and potlucks.

The scenario is always the same. . .I return home with an empty pan. 

Until next time. . .

this looks so yummy Pat! I quit using prepared mixes, but I'm going to buy a mix today and make this. Love that it uses yogurt so much. Really enjoy the variety on your blog. I'd put more recipes on mine, but I just can't cook. That's the sad truth. Please keep up the great (and easy) recipes.

Hi Pat, thanks for sharing this recipe. The first fresh strawberries are available here now and I copied down your recipe so that I could make this for Easter dinner! Sounds scrumptious!
