Summer is finally here! These few short weeks are filled with beach trips, playground exploring, poolside adventures, and plenty of get-togethers with family and friends. Now the infamous question, “What can I bring???” This recipe will have you saying, “I’ll bring a dessert.”
You can’t go into any grocery store without seeing the strawberries front in center. (At least near me it is like that.) You could also one-up me and pick your own fresh strawberries. (Just the thought of it…..YUM). This easy recipe is great and it does include fresh strawberries, so that may be a serving of fruit too ) I guess it depends on how strict you are and how much you want to eat it.
Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Icing
1 (3oz.) package of strawberry gelatin
½ cup cold water
1 (18.25 oz.) white cake mix
1 cup vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons flour
10 ounces of strawberries
6 Tablespoons of butter
2 cups of confectioners sugar
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Dissolve gelatin in big bowl with cold water. Stir in cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, flour and half of the pureed strawberries. Beat for 5 minutes and divide into two 9 inch cake pans. Bake for 35 minutes.
Cream butter, confectioners sugar and remaining pureed strawberries. Add more sugar until desired consistency.
I also made chocolate covered strawberries for presentation. This cake was a real show stopper )
