Strawberry Cake (with real strawberries)


This is so yummy! Dh loves it! And, it is perfect for the month of February, pink cake for Valentine's Day. This would be totally cute if done in a two layer cake, with the layers shaped as a heart...

Strawberry Cake

1/2 cup hot water
1 small pkg strawberry Jello
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup fresh/frozen strawberries ***thaw and drain VERY well if using frozen.
1 pkg yellow cake mix
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour cake pan. Mix ingredients in order they are listed, except for the eggs. Mix them well in a stand mixer until very well mixed. Mix in one egg at a time and beat well. Pour into cake pan and bake for 40 minutes or until done.


Icing:

1 box powdered sugar
1/2 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen *** if frozen, drain and thaw well, if not drained well, you will end up using a ton of powdered sugar
1/2 stick of melted butter
Mix well and add enough powdered sugar until nice and thick. Spread on cake. Enjoy!

That is so cute. I think a strawberry shortcake doll would go perfect as a gift with that.

Thanx for sharing the recipe and for stopping by.

Lisa,

i never do unless we want it cold. it is very good cold from the icebox, but since the eggs are cooked, i don't feel that it "has" to be.
