  • 1 box vanilla cake mix 18.25 oz
  • cup butter room temperature
  • 2 eggs, divided
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Optional: 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Spray 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray, or line with foil and spray foil to easily take bars out of pan to cut squares.
  • In large bowl, combine butter, one egg and cake mix. Mixture will be very stiff, so you might opt to use your hands (which I did.)
  • Reserve 1 cup of cake mixture for crumble topping, set aside.
  • Press the remaining cake mixture in the bottom of the pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  • While crust is baking, in a mixing bowl using mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and remaining egg until smooth.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture over top the partially baked crust.
  • Evenly arrange the strawberries over the cream cheese mixture and the sprinkle with remaining crumbles.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until center is set and crumbles on top turn golden brown.
  • Cool completely on wire rack.
  • Chill approximately 30 minutes before serving.


Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
For a quick glaze, ½ cup powdered sugar and 1 - 2 tablespoons milk, mix with a fork to get a thick pourable consistency. Tip: I put this mixture in microwave for 10=15 seconds and then pour it on bars. Glaze with firm up as it cools.
