Today is a beautiful day at my house! It’s been raining! Spring is in the air!

We love strawberries around my house and this is the perfect time of year for strawberry recipes. Do you ever make something and you don’t know how it’s going to work out? This is how I felt about this! This is was one of the first recipes we made when we started the blog.

I know there is a lot of poke cake recipes out there but I wanted to take it up a notch. I always enlist the help of my whole family as the test panel and believe me, they tell me exactly what they think!

From the first taste, it was apparent that we had a winner. This is so light and fluffy that it melts in your mouth! It was seriously gone in one day. Super easy to make but people will rave about this when you take it to your next BBQ.

  • 1 (8 ounces) Cool Whip, thawed


  1. Cake: Bake the cake according to the box directions in a 9x 13 pan. When the cake is done, let completely cool.

In another bowl, combine the cheesecake pudding mix, 4 Tablespoons butter, and a 1/2 cup flour. Again, using the fork to mix all the ingredients until the crumble forms.
  3. Spread both the strawberry and cheesecake crumble on to the lined cookie sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Check the crumble at 5 minutes, stirring so that the crumble doesn’t burn. Place pan in the freezer for 10 minutes to cool down the crumble. With a fork break up the crumble.
