Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Confession: I actually made this way back in July, before I had the baby. I know it isn't really strawberry season, but I did see them on sale recently. So there is still time for this cake before fall gets here. OR file this one a way for next year- it is really good! Once again, I have to thank that darn Betty Crocker for this great recipe.  
Would you believe there was a time I hated cakes and cake mixes? I was all about making everything from scratch... until I had my own kids! I don't have that kind of time- so shortcuts in the kitchen are what I do quite often- and cake mixes, are my friends.

 You can find this recipe HERE, and a beautiful photo of it that will make your mouth water, or you can find it right here:
Strawberry Yogurt Cake

1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix (or a yellow cake mix works fine too)

3/4 cup water

1/3 cup vegetable oil  (or unsweetened applesauce to cut out calories/fat)

3 egg whites  (or one egg plus one egg white)

1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free strawberry yogurt


1 container Betty Crocker® Whipped vanilla frosting

1 quart (4 cups) strawberries (you can get by w/ less if needed)

1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Generously grease and lightly flour two 8-inch or 9-inch round pans, or spray with baking spray with flour.

2 In large bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into pans.

3 Bake as directed on box for 8- or 9-inch rounds. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around sides of pans to loosen cakes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

4 Spread 1/3 cup frosting over 1 cake layer to within 1/4 inch of edge. Cut about 10 strawberries into 1/4-inch slices; arrange on frosted layer. Top with second layer. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting. Cut remaining strawberries in half; arrange on top of cake. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Thank you Betty Crocker for another easy and great recipe!
