Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of this day I thought I would make a strawberry cake for Ted and the boys for dessert tonight. I remember Mema making this cake quite often growing up. It’s definitely one of my favorites!
Unfortunately, my cake did not turn out as pretty as Mema’s always did. I tried baking in a bundt pan and I pulled it out a bit too soon. But it tastes wonderful nonetheless! And fortunately my boys don’t care what things look like, as long as they taste good!
1 box white cake mix
1 small box strawberry jello
1 c. oil
1/2 c. water
1 small pkg. frozen strawberries (sliced & sweetened) or 1 c. fresh strawberries sweetened – keep the strawberries in the ‘juice’
Mix together cake mix, strawberry jello, eggs, oil, & water with an electric mixer. Stir in strawberries. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. This can be baked in either a 9×12 pan or a bundt pan (if using a bundt pan add extra time – mine took about 15 extra minutes).
Icing: Mix together powdered sugar with 1 stick soft butter until well blended. Add 1 small pkg. sliced strawberries slowly. Alternate powdered sugar and strawberries until you get the right consistency. Pour over the cake while still hot to glaze.
