Deluxe Strawberry Shortcake
1 pkg (18 1/4oz.) yellow cake mix
1 cup water
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 8oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 carton (8oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
In a large mixing bowl, combine the first six ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into two greased and floured 9in. round baking pans.
Bake at 35o degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Place one cake on a serving plate; top with half of the cream cheese mixture and strawberries. Repeat layers. Store in refrigerator. Makes 12 servings.
