Michael Strahan Cake Recipe

Live With Kelly and Michael did their first segment ever featuring Louise Strahan, Michael’s mom.  Apparently, Michael’s mother’s friend Regina stole Michael’s favorite Butter Cake, and so Kelly needed Louise Strahan to teach her how to make the famous butter cake!  Here is the full video of the segment, along with a full recap of everything including Michael Strahan’s Mom’s Recipe for you to print out below.

Michael’s Mom’s Minute of Truth

Kelly Ripa played Minute of Truth with Michael’s mom, so here are so interesting facts we learned about the fabulous Michael Strahan:

  • Michael’s first word was “mama.”
  • Michael used a pacifier as a baby, rather than sucking his thumb.
  • Michael Strahan’s favorite stuffed animal was Peter Rabbit, how classic is that!
  • Louise Strahan gave him the pet name Mike.
  • Michael’s Mom said that he reminds her more of Some Kind of Wonderful than A Nightmare On Elm Street or Dennis the Menace,
  • Michael was the teacher’s pet rather than a class clown.
  • Michael’s Mother thinks that his prom date’s name was Wanda, though he claims to have not gone to prom.
  • Michael Strahan is afraid of snakes.
  • Michael bought his mom a house… talk about being a good son!
  • Michael Strahan’s favorite dinner is his Bulgogi Beef Recipe.

Kelly & Michael Cake Recipe

Ingredients for Michael’s Mom’s Cake:

  • 2 Boxes Cake Mix (Butter Recipe Flavor)
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 10 Eggs
  • 1 1/4 Cup Oil
  • 2 Cups Sour Cream
1.  Mix together all of the dry ingredients first, just like you would do in any cake recipe.
2.  Mix in the sour cream and the oil.
3.  Slowly add in one egg at a time, mixing well.  Kelly said this step will give you a great arm workout to boot!

Ingredients for Michael’s Mother’s Cake Icing Recipe

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 4 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa
  • Evaporated Milk
1.  Beat together the butter, powdered sugar and cocoa.  Louise Strahan said that she never really measures the powdered sugar, so you can use more or less than 4 cups depending on how sweet you like your icing.
2.  Gradually add in the evaporated milk and continue to beat the icing.  How much evaporated milk?  Good thing Michael Strahan answered this question on Twitter!  He said that you should keep adding evaporated milk until you reach the consistency that you like.

  • She baked it for one hour at 350 degrees. The cake pan size looks like the size of the pan you would bake macaroni and cheese in. Prett big. The pan was full.

  • She didn’t say what size the cake pan was, but it had to be a pretty good size.

  • Jackie Helzer

    This cake was amazing. However I live in Colorado and want to know if there needs to be a high altitude adjustment. When I took it out f oven it fell. also check it after 50 minutes, edges a little too brown. Still a delicios moist cake

  • The cake can be baked in a 9×13 pan, though if you want a thinner cake, you can put it into a larger pan or you could even make two 8″ or 9″ square or round cakes. Of course the baking time will have to be altered depending on the size of the pan that you use.

  • MaryBeth McCall
