  3. Pour cake mixture into pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Let the cake cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the Danish Dessert or strawberry pie filling according to package directions and let it cool completely. (I usually pop mine in the freezer to speed up this process.)
