Would you believe me if I told you there are no added eggs or oil in this dessert? Well believe it, this scrumptious dessert is made with only four ingredients, a boxed cake mix, champagne, sugar, and frozen strawberries. I highly recommend serving it warm, and topping it with vanilla ice cream. This takes those Summer strawberry shortcakes to a new level. If you don't like the taste of champagne, you could substitute a clear sparkling soda instead.
Reduced Fat Strawberry Champagne Funfetti Cobbler
2 pound bag of frozen whole strawberries
1 cup of sugar
2 1/2 cups of champagne (I used Cook's Brut)
1 box of Funfetti Cake Mix
Non stick butter flavored spray
Topping: vanilla ice cream
Optional: fresh strawberry slices for garnish
In a large pot, place your strawberries, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of champagne. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often, creating a delicious strawberry champagne reduction. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. I chose to bake my dessert in 10 half pint mason jars, but you can use a regular cake pan, if desired. If using jars, place an even amount in each jar of strawberry mixture. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix with 1 1/2 cups of champagne. Top each serving with an even amount of batter. Set your jars in a rectangular baking dish, to avoid spills, and bake for 22-24 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean. The strawberry sauce on the bottom will be boiling hot, so they will need to cool for 20 minutes or longer until you may safely serve. They may be served warm, with vanilla ice cream on top, and a fresh strawberry garnish. Store leftovers covered in fridge. They may be reheated the next day in the microwave for a few seconds.
Well that's one of many things I have been baking up, what about you? Come share at our Anything Goes weekly linky party.
