I Couldn't Resist!

I came across this recipe in one of my Make Ahead cookbooks and it sounded so different that I just had to try it! It is something like a Shoo fly pie, but with fruit instead of molasses.
I used fresh strawberry's instead of purchased frozen ones,
and a one layer cake mix, such as Jiffy Mix. I think if I make it again, I might use a yellow cake mix instead of the white.
Mix the cake mix up, pour it into your unbaked crust, and gently pour your strawberry's on top,
bake and enjoy the lovely aroma in your kitchen,
Let cool at least one hour, and serve with vanilla ice cream! Yummy! I kind of compared it to a strawberry cobbler taste, but different and well worth making again!

I would have not mixed the cake mix, used it dry and dotted with a half a stick of butter then baked it. ever made that kind of cake? i love the way the topping turns out.

I found the Chocolate version in my Mennonite Community Cookbook. I wrote down the Strawberry part from your post. I'll have to try this, thanks!
