  • 15x10x2 Sheet Pan
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Large Bowl
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Hand mixer



  • 15.25 ounces white cake mix 1 package, I used Pillsbury
  • 3.4 ounces instant vanilla pudding mix 1 box
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup milk ( I used 1%)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 egg whites

Whipped Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 ounces cream cheese 1 package, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 ounces cool whip 1 package, thawed
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries diced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a large jelly roll pan (15 x 10 x 1) with non-stick cooking spray (or grease and flour - whatever method you prefer).
  • In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, milk, oil, vanilla, and egg whites. Beat for about two minutes using electric mixer until batter is smooth.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and cook for 12-15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched in the center. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth, then fold in the Cool Whip and stir well.
  • Spread cream cheese layer over cooled sugar cake. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes to let the cream layer set up.
  • Top with fresh strawberries, cut, and serve.


  • I learned that these look the best if you put the strawberries on right before serving, otherwise the juice from the strawberries can tint your cream layer pink.
