DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Give your strawberries a good rinse then gently dry them with a paper towel.
  • Remove the stems and dice them up.
  • Then stick them in a plastic Ziploc bag and start crushing them up using a rolling pin or other heavy object. This will probably take you a minute or two.
  • In the bowl, combine cake mix with strawberry gelatin powder. Mix until combined.
  • Then stir in your oil, eggs and water.
  • Once that is combined, add in 1 cup of your smooshed strawberries.
  • You will want to gently stir those in by hand.
  • Then pour batter into baking dish.
  • Bake for about 30-33 minutes.
  • Oven times do vary so to make sure it is done, stick a toothpick in the center, if it comes out clean, it is good to go. Allow cake to cool completely before adding frosting.
  • To make the frosting, mix together your softened butter and softened cream cheese.
  • It's easiest if you have an electric mixer. Mix until smooth and creamy and lump-free.
  • Then mix in powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk.
  • Mix until smooth and creamy.
  • Slather frosting onto cooled cake.
  • Then slice and serve. If there are any leftovers, you'll want to cover it and put into the fridge.
