I perked up when I first read this neat recipe. Since my husband and I are muffin people, I was inspired by this recipe to make strawberry muffins through a modified version of this recipe. I had to do some adjusting: I hadn't white cake mix so I used a simple white cake recipe (following all the mixing and ingredient listed) and nixed the eggs, oil and water suggested by the Inez's recipe, but added to the white cake recipe the strawberry jell-o & thawed strawberries to the mix. I followed Inez's baking temp. and time. It yielded 12 muffins. I topped them off with the frosting. They tasted good. I can understand why kids would like them, with the fun pink colour.
This was great! I'll be making this often. Thanks for the recipe!
I had this recipe years ago and lost it, so I was delighted to find it here. Strawberry cake is a favorite of my family, so I made this for my son's birthday. It was moist and delicious, loaded with strawberry flavor. It refrigerates well, and keeps for several days.
Very Good! I addded a few squirts of whipcream to each edge for a decorative touch... and a happy face to my daughters, she was thrilled!
MizzNezz, I haven't had this recipe in years. Figured it was to be counted among the lost - thanks so much for posting it so that I could put it in my "rescued recipes" file!
I have made this cake several times and it's always a hit. I don't think I have ever made the frosting from this recipe. I'm sure it's great, but out of personal preference I either top this cake with the topping and frosting from http://www.food.com/recipe/refrigerated-strawberry-cake-81687, or I make a strawberry cream cheese frosting. I made a variation of it for my husband's birthday cake tonight and that prompted me to finally write a review. I usually skimp and use 3 eggs because that's what the cake mix box calls for, and it turns out fine.
I made this for my daughter's bday as strawberry cake is her favorite. I ended up using store bought icing and it was still wonderful.
This cake was a huge hit with my 2 kids and husband. I WAS worried about the 1 whole cup of veg oil but I decided to follow the recipe nervously. It turned out great and beautiful. I used a bunt cake pan and needed to bake for an additional 5 min or so. I used a homemade cream cheese frosting and sprinkled decorative sugar on top. Thank you so much for the recipe.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the ingredients listed, but this cake was a huge hit with the family, and it is delicious! I did substitute half the oil with unsweetened applesauce (I might try 3/4ths next time), and because I intended to serve the cake from the baking dish, I only made half the frosting recipe---which was still an ample amount. This recipe is very easy, and is good for when you are short on time---which I was yesterday. I used an 8x12-inch baking dish, and baked the cake about 10 minutes longer than directed. I must live in a cooking-utensil-challenged area (lol), because in addition to my fruitless search for a 7x11-in. pan, I also cannot locate a 9x12-inch pan. Yes, this cake is sweet---but aren't desserts supposed to be?
Thank you so much for posting this recipe! Based on the ingredients, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was the perfect addition to my 4 year old's "Pink-a-licious" birthday party. The cake was a huge hit. I used a strawberry buttercream frosting and decorated with fresh strawberries. Several moms asked for the recipe.
