Sounds like a good summer dessert. But I'm having a hard time picturing what it would look like given its name.

Looks just like an earthquake cake only white instead of chocolate.
If you don't care for the looks of it, just put some cool whip on top of it.

Believe me it is very yummy..
Enjoy

I just made this for a friend's birthday party. It was a huge hit! Lots of compliments.

I have some notes, however:

I blended the strawberries, cream cheese, and powdered sugar with an immersion blender. It was really runny, so I ended up marbling the cream cheese mixture with the cake batter. It may not have been as runny if I had just mashed the strawberries, but I would have to try it again. To make it thicker, I guess I could have added more cream cheese.

The baking time was way low for my oven. I took me closer to an hour for it to bake all the way through in a 9x13" pan. I also made one in a springform pan, and that took over an hour to bake. It turned out okay, but was not as moist as the 9x13 cake. I think if I were to use a springform pan again, I'd turn down the temp to 300 or 325 and plan to bake longer.

For a whole cake, you might want closer to 2-3 cups of strawberries. 1 cup for the batter, and 1-2 for serving at the end.

Thanks - it was a great recipe!
