Strawberry Cake

This cake is not the least bit healthy, but it is delicious! My husband started a tradition several years ago of making it for me for my birthday and this year he let my toddler help :)



  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (2-layer) box white cake mix
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 1 (3-oz.) box strawberry Jello
  • 1 (10-oz.) box frozen strawberries, thawed (reserve 3 tablespoons of the strawberries for frosting)

  • Frosting:
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
  • The 3 tbsp. reserved strawberries


Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Grease and flour 13x9x2-inch pan. In small bowl, beat together eggs, oil and water. In large mixer bowl, add flour to cake mix. Stir egg mixture, Jello, and strawberries into cake mix. Beat 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan and frost. Frosting: Beat together frosting ingredients.
