This easy, fruity strawberry cake filling takes less than 20 minutes to make. Use it to fill a multi-layer vanilla, chocolate or strawberry cake topped with strawberry or vanilla frosting.


  • 3 cups frozen strawberries, partially thawed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch



  • Storage: Store leftover strawberry filling in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. This filling does not freeze well.
  • Adjust the thickness. If the filling is too thick, add a small amount of water (about 1 teaspoon at a time) to thin it out.
