Sara Nan's Strawberry Cake

This is my Nana's recipe. It is very pink, very strawberry, and very sweet! A great summer cake that starts with a cake mix, so it's not hard to put together.


Recipe Notes
As with just about every other recipe on this blog, my oven ran hot and this cake was done earlier than the suggested time. I suggest watching your cake for the last 10 minutes or so. Also, I could only find whole frozen strawberries, so I mushed them up with a fork and added them to both the cake and the icing early so that they could be broken up into smaller pieces.


- 1 pkg. white cake mix (Nana suggested Betty Crocker)
- 3-oz. package strawberry Jell-O
1/2 c. water
- 1/2 c. vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 10-oz. package frozen sliced strawberries
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 lb. powdered sugar (1 box)


1. Thaw strawberries.

2. Mix cake mix, Jell-O, water, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Beat at a low speed until blended.

3. Add 1/2 package of strawberries and 1/2 strawberry syrup from package.

4. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

5. While cake is baking, cream butter and powdered sugar. Drain 1/2 remaining strawberries (1/4 of your original package) and add to the icing. Add enough strawberry syrup to make the icing of spreading consistency.

6. Spread icing over the cooled cake.
