Lemon Berry Poke Cake

Posted by Lori:
Last week my children wanted something sweet to eat. I told them I would make something quick using a cake mix, but the only kind we had was lemon flavored. I happened to have strawberries and whipped cream, so decided to make up a dessert using those ingredients. I knew that Sonic had a lemon-berry slush that was popular with a lot of people, so that slush became the inspiration for the cake. It turned out great! All of us - except the one non-lemon-fan - liked it. My dad was visiting today and he liked it, too. Apparently it's a keeper, so I'll share it with you.

Lemon Berry Poke Cake
1 lemon cake mix, baked per instructions on box
1 - 24 ounce container of frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 - 8 ounce container frozen whipped cream, thawed
1 cup powdered sugar

Bake cake per directions on box. Allow cake to cool. Drain strawberries, reserving juice. Poke holes in cooled cake with the end of a wooden spoon. Mix strawberry juice with sweetened condensed milk. Pour over cake. In medium bowl, mix strawberries, container of whipped cream, tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 cup of powdered sugar until well blended. Spread onto cake. Cover and place cake in refrigerator several hours or overnight before serving.

No, I don't think it would be described that way. The lemon flavor isn't very strong once the gooey stuff soaks in, but it's really good.
