Sweet Strawberry Davelish Dessert!

Home Grown Strawberries Magically turn into....
Which morphs into.......


Again, I though of this recipe by myself.
How did I come up with it?
I love cake & pudding, I had left over strawberries and I wanted something quick and easy and somewhat healthy.
I used radio pudding as a basis for my recipe.
For the syrup I cut the sugar in half and use white sugar (except I found it to be a bit too sweet so I lowered the amount in the recipe below)
only used 1 tsp margarine instead of a chunk of butter.
I kept the water the same amount.
I lined a 8 by 8 pan with about 1-2 cups of thawed strawberries (I froze ones from my garden, thawed them in the microwave and they become mushy but that's perfect for this recipe. I did not cut up the strawberries)
I poured the syrup on top and then made the cake recipe which I modified a little. Then baked in the oven.
Here's the recipe

Sweet Strawberry Davelish Dessert

  • 1-2 cups strawberries fresh or frozen ( amount depends on how much you want)
  • ** you can use other fruit such as blueberries, cherries, cranberries etc. or a combination of fruits
Spread them in a 8 by 8 square pan

for syrup
  • 1/4 and 2 tbsp sugar ( i do not reccomend a sugar substitute such as splenda because it needs to become syrup, thick an sticky.
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp margarine or butter or ommit
Combine all ingredients and boil for about a minute or two then pour on top of strawberries

for cake
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk (i used 2% but feel free to use any kind of milk or vegan milk.
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
Combine and pour onto strawberries & syrup

--) Bake in 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes (until ready depends on how you want it, gooey or not)

I served in wine glasses with some whipped cream :)
I already lowered the sugar content from when I made it, but feel free to experiment using less, if you like less sweetness then go for it!

  1. Ohhh that sounds absolutely divine! Love the idea of using the syrup for the cake. It must be so moist!
