Strawberry Gooey Butter Cake

Gooey Butter Strawberry Bars - These are so delicious and soft! Made with a strawberry cake mix!

In the summertime, I am always craving fruits and anything fruity. My favorite fruit of all would have to be STRAWBERRIES. They are just so sweet and juicy I’m not sure how anyone couldn’t like them. With it being summer and me craving some strawberries I’ve concocted a few Strawberry sweets I will be sharing with you over the next few days. The first one is today’s Strawberry Gooey Butter Cake (or bars)!!

I’ve made these “gooey” recipes a ton in the past but had never tried a strawberry version. With some cream cheese and strawberry cake mix, these bars turned out so delicious and were so easy to make. Really, with all the different cake mixes there are, there are endless gooey recipes you can make!

We love how these bars turned out!! You can even leave the strawberries off if you want them less fruity.

  1. MMM love this version of butter bars!! And you are so right who does not like strawberries?! Crazies! 😉

    1. Hi Liz. I haven’t keep them refrigerated before but I’m sure you could. My kids love them soft and gooey so we keep them out. And usually they’re gone pretty quick so there’s no need to store, lol. 😉

  2. These sound amazing!! I want to make them for work for Valentine’s day. I was thinking of putting fresh strawberries between the layers and then baking it. Any thoughts on that?

  3. Wow, this looks really good and delicious. I hope i would have time to make this strawberry bars this week.

  4. Just love the recipe’s you are sharing with me. Have a smile on my face when I turn on my computer and see your name. Thank you so much.

  5. I just took mine out of the oven, but it is for my husband’s birthday celebration tomorrow. I see you said you keep yours on the counter. Should I warm up the cake, before serving, to make it gooey or is this not advised?
    Can’t wait to taste it tomorrow. It smells yummy
