  • 4 oz (125 g) brick-style cream cheese, softened (half 250 g pkg)

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) lemon juice

  • 3/4 cups (175 mL) icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) butter, softened
  • 1 oz (30 g) cream cheese, softened (about 1/8 cup)

    Meanwhile, in food processor or blender, puree Strawberry Poke Mixture ingredients until smooth; transfer to 4-cup glass measuring cup, and set aside. While still in pan, poke holes in cake with end of wooden spoon at 1/2-inch intervals going almost to bottom. Use wet paper towel to wipe ends of spoon after each poke. Carefully pour poke mixture over holes in cake, using spoon to direct mixture into holes. If necessary, poke existing holes to make room for more mixture.

    Cool 40 minutes; refrigerate in pan 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator, and run metal spatula around outer and inside edges of pan to loosen cake; turn upside down onto serving platter.

    In medium bowl, mix Cream Cheese Glaze ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. If too thick, add additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency. Glaze cake as desired; garnish with strawberries. Keep refrigerated.
