Drain thawed strawberries, reserving syrup; set aside.

Spread half of the batter in a greased and floured 13x8x2-inch baking pan. Spoon drained strawberries over the batter.
Combine pecan layer ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle half of the nut mixture over the layer of batter and strawberries. Spread remaining batter over all, then sprinkle with remaining nut mixture.
Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes.
In a small saucepan, combine reserved strawberry syrup with 4 teaspoons cornstarch. Heat, stirring, until thickened and bubbly. Add 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Cool and serve over warm or cooled strawberry crunch cake. Serve with whipped cream or whipped topping, if desired.
