READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat oven to 350F; grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, gelatin, flour, water and eggs, and beat with mixer for 2 minutes.
  • Add 5oz. of the strawberries with syrup to batter and beat 1 minute more; then add oil and beat for an additional minute.
  • Pour batter into prepared pans and bake in preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove from pans and place on a rack to thoroughly cool.
  • When cake has cooled, frost with Strawberry Frosting, making a 2-layer layer-cake, putting frosting between both layers, on sides and on top.
  • Garnish top with fresh strawberries, if desired.
  • To make frosting, beat the butter in a large mixing bowl, with electric mixer, until smooth.
  • Beat in icing sugar, alternating with 5oz. of strawberries and syrup, until smooth.
  • Add vanilla extract and, if necessary, thin with a little milk or cream to spreading consistency.
