8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups strawberries, sliced ( I use entire 16 oz. container)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine cream cheese, butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.
Stir in milk, eggs and vanilla.
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to cheese mixture and mix until smooth.
Spread half the batter in a greased and floured 13×9 inch baking pan. (The batter is VERY thick. It works best to put little blobs of it across the whole pan and then spread them with a knife. One reviewer says they used a 8×8 inch pan, but I haven’t so I can’t vouch for how it will turn out or how long you need to bake it.).
Spread berries evenly over batter. Dot remaining batter over berries. Mix brown sugar and nuts; sprinkle evenly over cake.
Bake 40 minutes. Serve warm or cold
