🍓Strawberry Gelatin Cake🍓
1 BOX OF WHITE CAKE MIX
3 OZ. STRAWBERRY GELATIN
3/4 CUP OIL
1/2 CUP WATER
4 EGGS (ROOM TEMPERATURE)
1/2 HEAPING CUP OF STRAWBERRIES *See note below Mix all ingredients and pour into a well-greased 1/4 sheet cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the cake has begun to pull away from the edges of the pan. Leave in the pan and cool on a cooling rack.
1 STICK MARGARINE OR BUTTER (Butter makes everything better!)
3 1/2 CUPS POWDERED SUGAR 1/2 CUP STRAWBERRIES (STRAIN WELL)
Mix the above ingredients together well. Make sure the strawberries are not too syrupy or the icing will be runny. Ice cooled cake in the pan.
Thaw 15 oz. frozen sliced strawberries in sugar OR use 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, slice thin and add 1/2 cup sugar. Microwave sugared berries for 2 minutes, then mash and chill.
🍰Footnote: I found the frosting to be a little stiff and difficult to spread, so reserve some of the strawberry syrup you strain off, and add a tablespoon of it, if it’s too thick.
Seriously y’all. Try this. It tastes like Spring! 🍓
