Old Fashioned Strawberry Cake

Sharing is caring!

There are so many wonderful recipes using strawberries but I guess this is my favorite – just can’t improve on old-fashioned perfection in a sheet pan!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box cake mix, white
  • 1 (6-ounce) package strawberry Jello
  • 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen) mashed and mix with sugar for fresh berries (drain and save the juice)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 4 eggs, large

Strawberry Icing

  • 1-1/2 – 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 – 2 boxes powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen) mashed and mix with sugar for fresh berries
  • (save juice to add for consistency and color as needed)

Directions:

Cake:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together everything but the eggs.

Add eggs one at a time and continue mixing for two minutes.

Pour into two greased floured round cake pans.

Bake 25 – 30 minutes.

While cakes cool, punch holes in cake and drizzle with berry juice. Let cool completely.

Icing:

Cream butter with sugar, add berries and add juice to achieve spreading consistency.

Spread on cooled cake.
