Most days I am going bananas not strawberries. But as the strawberry season in Michigan gets closer I am getting amped up to make everyone crazy with all my strawberry recipes. I really don’t have that many. Not enough to write a cook book with or anything, but enough. Over the next week I’m gonna unload a few on you.
You can make this in a 9×13 in a layer cake3 thin layers is best or two if you are like me on the day I made this cake, for a baby shower….for a baby girl, of course.
Cupcakes are always good too. Or double the recipe and make a big ol sheet cake. Perfect for a potluck or picnic!
1 white or yellow cake mix
4 eggs (YES 4! get over it!)
1 cup of mashed fresh strawberries, no sugar added (or you are allowed to used thawed frozen strawberries)
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1- 3 oz. package strawberry Jell-O
1 stick of butter softened NOT melted
1 pound of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
**enough mashed strawberries to get frosting to the correct consistency
preheat oven to 350
MIX cake ingredients together well
MIX for a minute more. Pour into greased and floured pans.
Tap the flour to all corners then tap excess out into a sink.
BAKE for 20-30 minutes. Check with a toothpick when it comes out clean remove and let cool completely before frosting.
Aren’t these perfect for a little girls birthday? Or a picnic….well they are just perfect for any occasion TRUST ME on this people!
If you make this recipe and LOVE it let me know if you don’t love it please don’t let me know, not sure I could take it.
Strawberry cake seems to be a big thing over here, too. I, personally, am loving that this is a semi-home made type recipe. All the GF Strawberry cake recipes are a pain! I can't wait to try this with a gluten free cake mix! And cupcakes, yum! I'll let you know how they turn out. 🙂
BTW, I saw all the flooding going on in OK. I hope all is well and dry at the Ranch!
This looks fantastic! Thanks for sending me the link.
