Last week at work I literally tasted the most divine strawberry cake ever. I don't use the word divine often since very few situations warrant it but this cake, which was originally designed to be cupcakes, deserves the title. Thank you Debby for sharing it with me.
Ingredients For the Cake
1 Package of Plain White Cake Mix
1 Package of Strawberry Gelatin
1 C. Finely Chopped Fresh Strawberries with juice. ( Feel free to use frozen if you don't have fresh.)
3/4 C. Milk
3/4 C. of Vegetable Oil
4 Large Eggs
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Place the cake mix, gelatin, strawberries, juice, milk, oil,and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Use your electric mixer and blend it all together. Really make sure it is all thoroughly mixed together.
Once you are ready, pour it into your greased 9x13 Pyrex dish.
Stick it in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
While you are waiting make sure you enjoy licking the bowl. (It's the best part of cooking!)
When it's done pull it out and let it cool.
Now for the best part...
Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8oz. Package of Cream Cheese at room temperature.
4 T. (1/2 stick) of Butter at room temperature
3 to 3 1/2 C. of Powdered Sugar (Sift it if you need to)
1/2 C. Fresh cut up Strawberries
Stick the cream cheese and the buuutter in the mixing bowl and stir it all up.Now add 3 Cups of the Powdered Sugar and whip that baby on again.Make sure it all turns fluffy. If you want it a little thicker add another 1/2 C. Powdered Sugar.
Once you have reached your desired fluffiness ( I so love that word) than spread it all over the cake.
Don't be shy make it pretty and cover every last bit of it.
Last but not least if you have a few more strawberries stick them on top for garnish.
Strawberries are necessary for me kinda like chocolate is necessary for some women. Strawberries are heaven.
Hope You Enjoy...
Have A Berry Good Day,
